Why is Tongbiguan Nature Reserve So Special
It is the only region in China with a tropical biota of the Irrawaddy River system. The tropical mountain forest ecosystem in the area is well preserved and the biodiversity is extremely rich, especially the rare and endemic species. There is the iconic tropical rainforest vegetation, such as kapur in Yingjiang, as well as tropical animals such as hylobates hoolock(白眉长臂猿) and hornbills. These rare species and ecological communities are very sensitive to environmental changes and disturbances. It is very difficult to recover after destruction. Therefore, the protection of animal and plant resources and their habitats in this region is of great significance for the rescue and development of endangered species and the maintenance of ecological balance.
