Original Title: White Feather Pianfei Yunshuijian National Wetland Viewing Map to see where the most beautiful wetlands are
Today (February 2) is the 27th World Wetlands Day. This year's theme is "Wetland Restoration", which aims to raise public awareness of the contribution of wetlands to human beings and the planet, and promote actions to restore wetlands.
In recent years, my country's wetland construction has achieved outstanding results. There are 901 national wetland parks. China Weather Network has specially released a national wetland viewing map to check the characteristic autumn and winter landscapes and the best viewing periods of major wetland parks, and enjoy the beauty of China together.
At present, most parts of my country are still in winter. In autumn and winter, people can not only watch a large number of migratory birds in the wetland parks, but also the wetland landscape of each scenic spot has its own characteristics.
In the north, the Erguna National Wetland Park in Inner Mongolia has the most intact and large-scale wetland in China, and is known as "the first wetland in Asia".
Throughout the year, the winter here begins in mid-September, and the wetland valley has a lot of water vapor, which condenses on the plants to form a unique rime landscape, which stretches for hundreds of miles and is very spectacular.
Genheyuan National Wetland Park is located in Genhe City, not far from Erguna, which is known as "China's Cold Pole".
From the end of September every year, the root river will start to snow, and the snow season can last until about May of the following year.
In winter, a large number of birch and poplar forests in the Genhe Wetland Forest Farm are covered with snow, and you can experience the heroic feeling of forest, sea and snow when you walk through it.
The Sailimu Lake National Wetland Park in Xinjiang is covered with snow all year round in the high-altitude areas of the surrounding snow-capped mountains. Especially when winter comes after the end of October every year, the amount of snow in the snow-capped mountains gradually increases.
The water of Sailimu Lake is very clear, and there are a lot of plants growing on the bottom of the lake. After being frozen in winter, it looks like a mirror. After the plants decay, they release methane and other gases.
Liaoning Panjin Red Beach Scenic Corridor is also very famous in the northern wetlands. The best viewing period is from May to October every year. Among them, the Red Beach belongs to the retreating sea wetland. The unique wetland plant Suaeda salsa is fiery red, which not only has high ornamental value , It also provides food for birds such as red-crowned cranes and saunders who come here to overwinter.
In the south where there are many water systems, there are many wetlands.
Hangzhou Xixi Wetland National Park enters the early winter season every year, and the reeds bloom for the first time. The reeds in Xixi are divided into three varieties: grass, reeds and reeds, and most of them are concentrated around Qiuxue Nunnery.
Guiyang Huaxi National Urban Wetland Park is a rare urban wetland with a unique karst landform. In autumn and winter, the sycamore and ginkgo leaves on the Shili River Beach are dyed golden yellow, which is extremely beautiful.
Both Shuanggui Lake Wetland Park in Liangping, Chongqing and Zhangdu Lake Wetland Park in Wuhan are rich in fir forest resources, but the difference is that the former is dominated by metasequoia, while the latter is pool fir.
People often confuse Metasequoia with Pool Cedar. From the appearance, Metasequoia is taller with needle-like leaves, while Pool Cedar is shorter and its leaves curl downward.
In late autumn, the leaves of these two kinds of fir trees will be "painted", making them look fiery red from a distance.
Guangdong Hailing Island Mangrove Wetland Park is famous for its mangrove forests. Although there is a red letter in the name, the leaves and branches of this tree are green. Only after the bark is cut off can the trunk be exposed to red.
Mangroves play a very active role in purifying seawater and preventing wind and waves. They are mainly distributed in southern China, and Guangdong has the largest area.
Yunnan Honghe Hani Terraced Fields National Wetland Park is a typical artificial wetland. It is dominated by terraced landscapes. From the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain, the number of stages can reach up to more than 3,700 and the maximum vertical drop is more than 2,000 meters.
From November to March of the next year, the rain here is the most abundant, and the terraced fields are illuminated by the sun, like mirrors of the sky, surrounded by clouds and mist, and the scenery is beautiful.
Wetlands can not only provide people with different viewing landscapes in different seasons, but also are very important natural ecosystems, providing habitats for a large number of animals and plants, which can not only protect biological diversity, but also regulate climate and purify water quality.
Interested friends can go to watch according to the best viewing period, remind everyone to pay attention to wearing masks when traveling, and do a good job of health protection.
