Known for its good ecological environment, Lishui in East China's Zhejiang province has been looking for effective ways to protect its biodiversity in recent years.

Biodiversity is an essential base for the development of human society. Lishui, which literally means "beautiful water" in Chinese, has carried out thorough explorations into the protection of its biodiversity.

The government has established several natural reserves to protect rare species, such as mandarin ducks, Chinese mergansers, and several old trees in recent years. Also, the city has rolled out a series of regulations and policies to ensure the species are well protected.

Researchers are deepening their investigations into the rural regions of Lishui by using high-tech equipment, such as infrared cameras.

With these measures, the ecology in Lishui has improved and some rare species have come back. Based on this, the city has turned to an ideal place for many nature lovers to savor its environmental charm.
