National park to protect tigers
An area on the border of Heilongjiang and Jilin provinces will be the second addition to a trial national park program and will focus on protecting wild Siberian tigers and leopards, according to government officials.
The new addition has been approved by the National Development and Reform Commission, the top economic planner.
The trial program is intended to streamline the management of scenic spots and reduce the reliance on raising funds through commercial activities, environmental groups said on Wednesday.
The national park trial program will run until 2017, when officials will evaluate its effectiveness.
