Fujin Wetland Center final project presentation
Matthew and Rebecca, accompanied by WWT’s CEO, Martin Spray, recently travelled to the Heilongjiang Province in the far north east of China to formally present the masterplan for the Fujin National Wetland Park. Once an area of extensive wetlands, like so many places in the world they were drained for agriculture. But here the wetland has been re-created and a centre built to allow people to experience and enjoy the wetland habitats. The meeting was attended by senior government officials from the province and from the national State Forestry Administration which has responsibility for wetland issues across China.
