Nearly 400,000 migra-tory birds have flown to Beida-gang Wetland in north China’s Tianjin Municipality since the beginning of autumn this year, Beidagang Wetland administra-tion said Wednesday.

“We have spotted over 130 kinds of birds in the wetland, including more than 60 oriental white storks, which are under highest-level protection in China, said Mo Xunqiang, from the Tianjin Normal University.

Tianjin is an important transit point for migratory birds from East Asia and Australasia. In ad-dition to the Beidagang Wetland, other wetlands and nature re-serves in the municipality are also expected to see migratory birds.

In recent years, Tianjin has at-tached great importance to the building of ecological civilization and continuously strengthened wetland protection.

The ecological environment of wetlands and nature reserves has seen continuous improvements, attracting more and more migra-tory birds, noted the Tianjin Mu-nicipal Bureau of Planning and Natural Resources.

According to the bureau, more migratory birds are expected to fly to Tianjin until the end of De-cember, with the total number of migratory birds exceeding 1 mil-lion by then.–APP
