Hubei delegate urges creation of national park at Shennongjia

Hubei delegate Qian Yuankun urged the NPC to establish a national park at the Shennongjia Forestry District, a county-level administrative unit in the northwest of Hubei province, in order to integrate its current management and protection programs. Shennongjia, at present, is simultaneously a national-level environmental protection zone, a national-level forest park, a national-level wetland park, and a national-level geological park, each of which is managed through a separate compliance system.
