On February 4, Shantou City held the publicity event of the 22nd World Wetlands Day in the Green Dream Wetland Ecological Park, which attracted the participation of many citizens.

There are various types of wetlands in Shantou: offshore and coastal wetlands, river wetlands and lake wetlands. Among others, the area of offshore and coastal wetlands is 46,667 hectares. There are 268 species of wetland plants in coastal wetlands, which belong to 92 families; the wetland plants within these areas include phragmites communis, scirpus tabernaemontani, cyperus malaccensis, typhaangustata and other communities as well as mangrove forests. In recent years, Shantou City has made great efforts to promote the protection and construction of wetlands, and completed the demarcation of the boundaries of China’s first international wetland demonstration area, the installation of boundary markers, the road sign, bulletin boards, watchtowers and other facilities, as well as the forestation of mangroves. Shantou City has built more than 30 natural reserves, wetland parks, ecological parks and forest parks, which focus on wetlands. They cover a total area of 20,000 hectares, accounting for 10 percent of Shantou's total territory. Many rare birds settle down in these areas and live through the winter. The experts, scholars and tourists from home and abroad come to these areas to conduct investigation, go sightseeing, or spend their holidays.
