Yunnan, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, boasts of 30 kinds of ecosystems, 114 kinds of forest, and a huge number of rare and endemic animals. But with rapid socioeconomic developments came deforestation, forest fragmentation and land use change seriously threatening the natural environment of Yunnan in the past 60 years.
Since 2017, we have implemented a multi-value forest restoration project in Yunlong Tianchi National Nature Reserve with a focus on the burned area recovery, scientific research and monitoring, nature education and community development. In 2018, we carried out a community-based species survey and conservation initiative in Lafu Village of Menglian and Naren of Deqin to address the conservation gaps identified.
