East China city strengthens wetland protection

来源:Xinhua 时间:2019年11月11日
Hefei, capital of eastern China's Anhui Province, has passed measures to strengthen the protection of 10 major wetlands around Chaohu Lake, China's fifth-largest freshwater lake.
 
The decision was approved recently by the city's lawmakers to provide legal means to protect the environment of the lake, which is located at the southeastern part of Hefei.
 
The decision lists a series of measures to preserve the wetlands around the lake, such as banning human activities of fishing, land reclaiming and garbage dumping in the protection zone.
 
Besides, the city also plans to restore its shrinking wetlands by returning cultivated lands and relocating residents living in certain areas.
 
There are a number of wetlands around Chaohu Lake, covering an area of 78,000 hectares, or 67 percent of the city's total wetlands.
 
Wetlands play a crucial role in water purification, flood control and maintaining bio-diversity. China has more than 600 wetland nature reserves and over 1,000 national wetland parks.
