Pilot national parks make progress in ecological protection.
All of China’s 10 pilot national parks will have finished construction next year, with some parks having made significant achievements in ecological and wildlife protection, the forestry department announced on Thursday.
Since 2015, China has approved the construction of 10 pilot national parks covering more than 20 square kilometers.
In Northeast China Tiger and Leopard National Park, the number of endangered wild animals in the park has witnessed satisfying growth in the past two years, the National Forestry and Grassland Administration said on Thursday.
Both the Siberian tiger and Amur leopard-two species listed as critically endangered in the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List-have seen a population increase, with 10 young baby Siberian tigers and six Amur leopards born during the period, according to Zhang Shanning, deputy head of the park’s management bureau.
China is finally making progress with wildlife conservation. The country is doing a pilot with 10 national parks and is already seeing the results.
Keep on going China!
