Yunnan Tops in China for Wetland Biodiversity

A recent report ranked southwest China’s Yunnan province as the highest in the country for wetland biodiversity. The province has 563,500 hectares of wetlands, including four different types (riverine, lake, marsh and artificial wetlands). In addition to size, Yunnan’s wetlands are also thriving with animal and plant species, including 2,274 species of higher plants and 1,006 species of vertebrates. Yunnan is home to 17 wetland nature preserves, helping to keep these crucial areas under protection. Yunnan strives to restore and protect the province’s unique wetland varieties, which will in turn benefit the entire region.
