Hexigten Banner: Guardians of the wonderland

Hexigten Banner boasts disparate natural landscapes with mountains, grasslands, wetlands, stones and volcanos. Both the landscapes and wildlife are guarded by a group of people, the local forestry police. 

The Hexigten Forestry Police Bureau was established at the end of the 1980s. Since its inception, the police have put the security of forest resources as their top priority. They've cracked down on illegal poaching and protected the wildlife inhabiting there.
