Songshan-A Conservation Window in China By Margaret Southern With millions of visitors pouring into China for the 2008 Olympic Games, a nature reserve just 55 miles from Beijing presented an opportunity for tourists to experience the region’s spectacular biodiversity up close. Nestled in the depths of the Yangshan Mountains, 11,500-acre Songshan National Nature Reserve is home to hundreds of plant and animal species, including four nationally protected animals: the golden eagle, imperial eagle, golden leopard and black stork. But the reserve lacks the necessary facilities to accommodate increased ecotourism and does not have the resources to help limit unregulated public access, which has already damaged sensitive areas in the reserve. That’s why the Chinese government has asked The Nature Conservancy to help transform Songshan — and 50 other nature reserves across the country — into a world-class nature reserves that safeguard their rich habitat and promote sustainable ecotourism.
