Weishan Lake National Wetland Park was awarded the Top Ten Charming Wetlands in China
On October 31, 2013, I learned from the award ceremony of "Beautiful China Charming Wetland" of China's Top Ten Charming Wetlands. In the large-scale public welfare activities of "Beautiful China Charming Wetland Travel", Weishan Lake National Wetland Park emerged from 41 international important wetlands, more than 400 national wetland parks and more than 550 National Nature reserves, and was selected as "China's Top Ten Charming Wetlands". It is the only wetland in Shandong Province that has won this honor.
Weishan Lake is a large inland freshwater grassland lake with complete structure and good preservation. It covers an area of 1266 square kilometers. It is the largest freshwater lake in northern China. It is the unique river-lake blending wetland and the largest lake-island wetland group in Asia. It has been named "the first wetland in Asia in Weishan Lake" by the most board of directors of Guinness Asia. She is also an important reservoir and water conveyance channel for the East Route of the National South-to-North Water Transfer Project. The Weishan Lake National Wetland Park under construction, with a total planning area of 150,000 mu, is a large public welfare ecological project with the wetland ecosystem and history and culture as the main resources, wetland protection, popular science education, water purification and ecological tourism as the main contents. The beautiful scenery not only attracts more than 200 birds to settle down, but also brings back the extinct saury, small silver fish and mandarin fish after natural purification.
In May 2013, the State Forestry Administration and CCTV launched a large-scale public welfare activity of "Beautiful China Wetland Travel". By searching for the most representative and typical wetlands in China, they show the beauty and magic of different types of wetlands and arouse the public's awareness of cherishing and protecting wetlands. According to the criteria of "whether the value is outstanding, whether the shape is typical, whether the species is unique, and whether the protection is strong", the "Ten Charming Wetlands in China" including Weishan Lake National Wetland Park was finally finalized through the selection of TV exhibition, online voting, and the general meeting of the organizing committee.
