Mao'er Mountain - China


Maoer Mountain, China, features a mountain landscape of exceptional scenic beauty, with peaks reaching over 2,000 m above sea level. The site has an abundance of sub-tropical broad-leaved, coniferous and bamboo forests and provides the habitat for two rare, endemic salamander and frog species (Hynobius Maoer Mountainensis and Rana Maoer Mountainensis). The biosphere reserve is inhabited by Han Chinese and various ethnic minorities (including Miao, Yao, Zhuang, Dong, Yi and Hui) displaying a rich cultural diversity in the area. Thanks to a Global Environment Facility (GEF) funded project, environmental protection and sustainable economic activities, including eco-tourism, have been well developed in the area.
