  • 3. Nature Reserves in China
    • With her vast area, diverse landscapes and climatic variations, China harbors a rich wildlife heritage. The Chinese government and conservation organizations have paid great attention to natural reserve construction as a means of protecting the natural environment and resources. by the end of 1995, 779 nature reserves of all 3 categories (forest wild animal and natural historical heritage) and 750 national forest area (a total area of 78,450 thousand hectares: 8.7% of national territory) were set up to preserve the unique fauna and flora and serve as basis for scientific research, education and tourism.

    • Thanks to these efforts, some endangered species including Cathaya argyrophylla, Camellia chrysantha, Golden monkey, Takin, Eld deer, Chinese alligator and crested ibis have begun a gradual recovery and steady population growth.

  • 11. The Dhole
    • In the jungles of south and southeast Asia there lives a little known member of the dog family, which has been described as the "red dog" in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book . The "red dog", the dhole, or the Asiatic wild dog (Cuon alpinus) , is an animal which lives in packs. According to Kipling, it was so feared that even the wolf pack featured in the story had to move out of an area invaded by a dhole pack. Of course in most parts of Asia, wolf and dhole packs do not live together and therefore the encounter was purely fictional. Dhole packs are feared by many inhabitants of the jungle, including spotted and sambar deer, which they prey upon. Even the big cats of the Asian jungles, the leopard and the tiger, will avoid contact with a dhole pack.

The Asian elephant is classified as an endangered species due to a reduction of at least 50% of the Asian elephant population over the last three generations based on a decline in area of occupancy and levels of exploitation. The Asian elephant has four subspecies: the Indian, Ceylon, Sumatran, and Malaysian elephants.
