China passed animal protection law for endangered species but allows for captive breeding and public performances.

China has recently passed a ‘new wild animal protection law’ which prohibits the sale of food made from endangered wildlife but allows for other products to be derived from them, including for traditional Chinese medicine practices, where for example, bears are bred simply to make products for medicinal purposes, which scientifically is still not proven to work.
