Wetland Conservation Community

A wetland conservation community is a relatively small protected area designated by administrative authorities below the county level. Its purpose is to enhance wetland resource protection, ensure the health of wetland ecosystems, fully harness the comprehensive benefits of wetlands, and serve local ecological conservation. These areas are specially managed and protected, and they form an integral part of the province's wetland conservation system. 

In recent years, Yancheng has successively established 46 wetland conservation communities in areas of high conservation value, such as essential habitats for wild flora and fauna and water sources, which face significant threats. 


Four wetland conservation communities have been formed, with the natural wetland conservation rate exceeding 69%. While improving the preparation of wetland restoration planning, the restoration and protection of coastal wetlands has been promoted in an all-round way. 17,000 acres of returning fishing (farming) to wetness completely in aquaculture areas have been completed, and 12,000 acres of Spartina Alterniflora have been remediated cumulatively. The restoration area on the north side of Tiaozini wetlands is delineated as 2800 acres of black-billed gulls' breeding grounds, where the specialized staff patrols 24 hours a day to ensure that the birds in this area are free from man-made interference in their reproduction.
