Since 2012, ConocoPhillips has worked with the International Crane Foundation ("ICF") and local partners along the crane flyways across eastern China to conserve cranes and the wetland and grassland ecosystems on which they depend. The program works with people dependent on the resources of wetlands and their watersheds to devise economic strategies that safeguard their resource base, while being simultaneously compatible with water-fowl and ecosystem protection. ConocoPhillips has supported field surveys on cranes and water birds, and sponsored environmental education for primary school students living in wetlands areas in northeast China including Bohai Bay in order to promote waterbird protection.
