With seven natural reserves for wetland types, the city has achieved a wetland protection rate of over 60%.

The wetlands host a stable population of wild plants and an increasing number of wild animals. Each year, over 30 species of waterbirds in their hundreds of thousands migrate here for winter. [Video by Jin Jing]
