Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is in the spotlight once again, but not as an actress. This time, Zhang Ziyi is hosting an English TV program titled "The Story of Wildlife," which aims to draw attention to wild animals facing extinction.
Zhang shot the program last December at a conservation area in Sabah, a region in Malaysia, Xiaoxiang Morning Post reported.
The trailer of the program shows Zhang visiting a tropical rainforest and introducing some species of the nearly-extinct wildlife.
Although the insects in the rainforest are potentially harmful, Zhang insisted going into the rainforest herself to give the audience a closer look at the animals.
