To comprehensively lift the protection and renovation level of its wetlands, Shandong carries out a total quantity control of wetland area and includes all of its wetlands into the scope of protection to ensure no reduction of the total wetland area and the wetland wildlife populations.

Shandong boasts a total area of 1.7375 million hectares of wetlands, accounting for 11.09 percent of its total area. It ranks 7th in China. From 2018, indicators such as the protected area, protection rate and ecological regime are included in the ecological civilization construction evaluation system. A reward mechanism and a lifelong accountability mechanism are set to be established, according to the Forestry Department of Shandong Province.

As of 2020, the total area of wetlands  in Shandong is expected to be no less than 26 million mu and the protection rate rises to more than 70 percent.

A control mechanism on the use of wetland is also to be launched. The function of wetlands is determined by its main body functions. Requisition and occupation without authorization of national, provincial, municipal and county-level wetlands are prohibited. Reasonable use of wetlands is allowed taking protection as a prerequisite.
