In the April edition of Harper’s Bazaar China, Chinese actress Li Bingbing posed alongside a leopard, Hyacinth macaw, and some Tibetan antelopes and African elephants to create a stunning photoshoot, and it’s all for a great cause.

The inspiration behind Li Bingbing’s latest photoshoot was “Go Wild for Life”, this year’s theme for World Environment Day (June 5). But this isn’t a one-time photoshoot gimmick concept for the 44-year-old star. As a high-profile celebrity in China with work in the mainland (The Knot, The Forbidden Kingdom) and Hollywood (Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Resident Evil: Retribution), she uses her fame to help highlight causes close to her heart. In this pictorial’s case: protecting wildlife habitat. As a United Nation Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador, she says that illegal trade in wildlife is just one of the many concerns she has regarding the environment, according to a speech she made at the UN Climate Summit in 2014.

The fashion spread is wildly beautiful, and the reason behind the pictures, even more so.
