Chongming Dongtan National Nature Reserve Won the 1st “Ecological Chinese Wetland Protection Award”


At the recently-closed 2019 World Wetlands Day activity, Chongming Dongtan National Nature Reserve won the 1st “Ecological Chinese Wetland Protection Award”. At the approaching of the Spring Festival, please follow the latest aerial video to enjoy the pleasure of flying in the sky with migrant birds.

Chongming Dongtan National Nature Reserve has been a well-known ecological name card among Shanghai citizens. It was officially founded in November 1998 upon the approval of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government and was promoted as a national nature reserve by the State Council in July 2005. To protect the wetland for thousands of migrant birds, Dongtan people have stayed firm to their original intention and fought a tough battle on ecology control between human and grass, thus managing to welcome thousands of migrant birds. On the occasion of the 2019 World Wetlands Day, a professional aerial photography has been initiated to record the splendid scene of this “Heaven for Birds” after 20-year’s protection and construction from the perspective of migrant birds coming here to live through winter.
