Chinese Diplomats Attend "Restore The Bay" Program


On June 5, 2017, in celebration of World Environment Day, diplomats from the Chinese Embassy joined representatives from other foreign missions at the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland to plant underwater seagrass, which was part of the “Restore The Bay”program launched by the State Department and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The Chinese diplomats won a prize for the “strongest seagrass”.


The Chesapeake Bay drainage basin is around 64,000 square miles, which covers parts of six states and all of Washington D.C.. By organizing diplomats from foreign missions to restore seagrass in the Chesapeake Bay, the program aims to raise awareness of the challenge of clean water and saving our planet.


Representatives from 15 embassies as well as international organizations take part in the program.
