Yao Ming

Yao Ming  won the CBA championship with the Shanghai Sharks before moving on to the NBA’s Houston Rockets in 2002. Forced to retire in 2011 after being plagued by foot and ankle injuries, Yao has focussed his energy on running the Shanghai Sharks and promoting conservation.

Articulate and passionate, Yao’s influence in conservation is huge – as has been seen with some of the campaign successes around shark fin soup and other work, especially with WildAid
