1,405 nature reserves established in China

CHINA has established a total of 1,405 nature reserves covering 109 million hectares, according to officials from the State Forestry Bureau.  

The nature reserves have effectively protected 85% of China’s wildlife species and 65% of its wild floral species.  

Ma Fu, deputy director of the bureau, said recently that China has also made great strides in protecting internationally-endangered biological species by signing agreements with a large number of countries to mutually protect such rare animal species such as migratory birds and tigers.  

According to him, China’s nature reserves have won wide acclaim from the international community.  

Twenty-two Chinese nature reserves have been listed in the “human and biosphere” protection network sponsored by Unesco.  

In the future, he said China will quicken the pace of building nature reserves at the headwaters of its major rivers, as well as in the country’s major forests and swamps. – People’s Daily
