World Expo site will include wetland park
2009. 15 April
(china.org.cn) A 14-hectare wetland park featuring natural habitats will be part of the greenery landscape at the World Expo site, Shanghai Expo organizers have announced.
Expo authorities hope to reproduce an urban wetland landscape by protecting and rehabilitating soil resources as well as plants and animal species.
The park will be in the Pudong section of the Expo zone and along the bank of the Huangpu River.
The wetland will be divided into two parts – an original wetland and an artificial wetland, according to organizers.
The outer part of the wetland will form a natural shelter against floods and help purify water, while the inner artificial wetland will serve as an ecological and educational spot.
More than 30 percent of the park has been finished.
