Feb. 2 marks the 23rd World Wetlands Day, for whose theme is “Wetlands and climate change” highlighting the role of wetlands as a natural solution to reduce the impact of climate change. According to news from the Nature Resource Department of Shandong Province, Shandong built 10 national-level wetland parks and 12 provincial-level wetland parks in total last year, increasing the rate of wetland protection to 45 percent from 10 percent in 2000.

In recent years, Shandong has established 200-odd wetland parks, covering an area of 746,000 hectares, which has effectively protected 60 percent of wetland wildlife population and 80 percent of wetland higher plant community and 20 percent of wetland ecosystem.

This year, our province will carry out the wetland protection and restoration project, strengthen the protection of small and micro rural wetlands, and strive to increase the wetland protection rate to more than 70 pwercent by 2020.
