Natural heritage site Shennongjia hailed for balanced protection, development

Shennongjia nature reserve in Hubei province stands out as an example of balanced tourism development in China. Shennongjia began to see large-scale lumber exploitation in the 1960s, which badly depleted tree cover in the region. However, local authorities began to protect and develop the region into an eco-tourism destination in the 1980s. In 2016, Shennongjia was crowned China's first world natural heritage site by UNESCO.
