WWF partners with Arknights for a special event to raise awareness for iconic species under threat
Posted on 19 May 2021
Following Yostar's Azur Lane successful cooperation with WWF, we are glad to announce that Arknights is pledging support to WWF’s conservation work through a unique charity event called the “Coexistence”.
This event aims to increase awareness for snow leopards and their habitats as well as raise funds for WWF’s conservation work. The event will start on May 19th at 04:00 (UTC - 7) and last until June 2nd at 03:59 (UTC - 7).
During the event, two packs will be available in the store for a limited time and special coexistence login rewards will begin.

The total donation gathered from packs (minus channel fees) will be redistributed to WWF to support their conservation efforts. Arknights and Yostar wish to further their partnership with existing organizations protecting wildlife and nature.
The Arknights team visited one of the snow leopard conservation centres in Wolong, China to discover the importance of wildlife protection and ecosystem. With only up to 6,600 left in the wild in 12 range countries, snow leopards are threatened by hunting, habitat loss and retaliatory killings. They play a key role as both top predator and as an indicator of the health of their high-altitude habitat. If snow leopards thrive, so will countless other species.
WWF’s work focuses on reducing human-leopard conflict and rural development, education for sustainable development, stopping mining in fragile snow leopard habitat, and the control of the illegal wildlife trade.
