About 'City of Wild'
Nature is not limited to faraway mountains and oceans, it also exists in urban cities and our daily lives. In the series, "City of Wild," CGTN not only unfolds a world of wildlife you were probably not aware of, but also highlights the theme of this year's CBD COP15: Ecological Civilization: Building a Shared Future for All Life on Earth.
