Habitats As you’d expect from a country as vast as China, it has a diverse range of habitats, from wetland to desert, tundra to tropical forest and mountains to plains. Agriculture has replaced most of China’s native forest, although there are still large expanses in the northeast that remain relatively untouched. The east is so highly developed that little of its original native habitat survives, but away from the coast there are still wild pockets, some of which have been designated national parks and forest reserves, such as Shennongjia in Hebei, which is reputedly home to a yeti-like creature!

In parkland areas you’re likely to see squirrels and, if you’re lucky, deer. For those traveling into western mountain regions, you’ll likely encounter yaks, both wild and domesticated and, if you’re southwardbound, you may see monkeys. China’s rivers also offer an array of wildlife, including river dolphins (see list below), sturgeons and even alligators. Fauna n 39 Endangered Species Brown Eared Pheasant – China has a quarter of the world’s 196 species of pheasant, including the rare brown eared variety.

Despite reducing its heavy industry base and the grand Three Gorges Dam hydroelectric project (which creates as many environmental problems as it solves – see p. 278), China is one of the world’s most polluted countries. The government is now starting to address these issues with projects like the Green Great Wall that aims to combat soil erosion in the north of the country through reforestation, and by raising taxes on environmentally damaging products, from disposable wooden chopsticks to luxury cars.
