In 1986, the U.S. and China established the U.S.-China Nature Conservation Protocol in order to conserve species
and their habitats. Under the Protocol, the two countries agree to establish and manage protected natural areas for conservation of wildlife and habitats, regulate trade of endangered species, and participate in cooperative research
and management projects.

Russia’s vast terrain stretches from the frozen tundra of the far north, to the peaks of the Caucasus Mountains to

endangered species and play an increasingly vital role in storing emissions of carbon dioxide.
