XINING, March 3 (Xinhua) — Northwest China’s Qinghai Province will
push forward the construction of a national park cluster to improve the
ecological environment of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, local authorities
said on Wednesday.
Having built two national parks around Sanjiangyuan, home to the
headwaters of the Yangtze, Yellow and Lancang rivers, as well as the
Qilian Mountains, Qinghai has integrated 109 nature reserves of various
levels to make 79 in total, said Li Xiaonan, head of the provincial
forestry and grassland bureau.
National parks account for 52.2 percent of the province’s total
nature reserve area, which has been expanded by another 34,100 square km
and now makes up 38.42 percent of the province’s total land area.
While promoting the establishment of the Sanjiangyuan and Qilian
Mountains national parks, Qinghai is now accelerating its applications
to construct national parks around Qinghai Lake and the Kunlun
Mountains, aiming to grow its national park cluster. Enditem
