Tianjin’s wetland area accounts for 17.1 percent of its land area, one of the highest among domestic administrative regions at the same level. The city has vigorously promoted the protection and restoration of the wetlands of Qilihai, Dahuangpu, Tuanbowa, and Beidagang, which have a total combined area of 875 square kilometers, as well as the Bohai Sea coastline with a length of 153 kilometers. The wetlands in Tianjin have become a paradise for rare wild birds.
