The Mount Qo­molangma Na­tional Na­ture Re­serve will ad­just its scope to bet­ter bal­ance pro­tec­tion with devel­op­ment, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties said on April 2. To strengthen the pro­tec­tion of rare wildlife, the re­serve’s scope will be ex­tended to in­clude a wet­land area at the source of the Yairu Zangbo River, Docha Lake and sur­round­ing ar­eas. Some ar­eas, such as the gov­ern­ment seats of four coun­ties and 26 town­ships and the high­ways al­ready built in the re­serve, will be re­moved from its scope.
