Vast areas on the coast of the Yellow Sea featuring intertidal mudflat and saline soil are bursting with life thanks to protection and afforestation efforts, becoming invaluable ecological assets to Dongtai city in East China's Jiangsu province.

"An increasing number of birds have been observed at Tiaozini wetland in recent years, including the endangered spoon-billed sandpiper and Nordman's greenshank," said Lyu Hongtao, a local official in charge of the wetland conservation.
