Hainan Tropical Rainforest National Park, a treasure trove of nature

Since its formation in 2021, the Hainan Tropical Rainforest National Park in south China has increased conservation efforts to safeguard endangered wildlife species. 

The national park, which covers more than 4,000 square kilometers, is the largest tropical rainforest on a continental island and serves as an important gene bank for germ plasm resources.

Seven of the park's 149 nationally rare plant species, including Cycas hainanensis and Hopea hainanensis, are under first-class protection.

Additionally, it serves as a habitat for 145 nationally endangered wild animal species, 14 of which are first-class protected species, including the Hainan gibbon and Eld's deer.

As of July of this year, the Hainan gibbon population in the park has been restored to 37 individuals spread among six groups as a result of intensive conservation efforts.
