The livestreaming session showcases the making of 30 forms of tiger theme artworks with different traditional Chinese intangible cultural heritage techniques.

"We are happy to join hands with a powerful platform like Kuaishou and find that more people are aware of the protection of wild Siberian tigers and even the global wild tigers," added Liu.
"In traditional Chinese culture, the tiger is considered the king of all beasts, symbolizing power, justice, and protection," explained Qi Hang, regional cooperation director of Kuaishou. "As tigers are experiencing unprecedented threats due to illegal trade in tiger parts, we team up with WWF and intangible cultural heritage craftsmen, calling on the public to protect the natural environment and refuse consumption of tiger products."
