Na­tional park to pro­tect tigers

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

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.
