10 Years’ Anniversary for Xixi Wetland Park 2018-05-31
The beauty of Hangzhou is usually associated with the picturesque West Lake, mind-blowing tides of Qiantang River and graceful Xixi Wetland. Xixi Wetland Park celebrated the 19th World Wetland Day on February 2. The theme this year is ‘Wetland, Our Future,’ emphasizing the mutual reliance of wetland and human beings.

Xixi Wetland Park is the first wetland park in China, and February 2 also marked the 10 years’ anniversary for the park. Since it was established in February 2005, the park’s natural environment has been improved, revenue from various businesses increased and reputation grown. The combination of environmental protection and reasonable resource tapping proved to be effective. The park won ‘Zhejiang Ecological Cultural Base’ title on Monday.

China has established over 570 wetland preservations and over 900 wetland parks so far, with 43.51% of the country’s wetland area being under protection, compared to 30.49% ten years ago.

However, China’s wetland is still shrinking, accompanied by weakening ecological functions and loss of loss of biodiversity,’ said Zhang Yongli, deputy head of the National Forestry Bureau. China will impose the most strict protection measures and enforce preservation policies to ensure no decrease of wetland area, no development of wetlands and no deterioration of ecological functions. The target is to maintain over 800 million mu wetlands and 55% of the wetlands are under protection by 2020.
