Mount Fanjingshan, situated in China’s southwestern province of Guizhou, was inscribed to the World Heritage List today at the 42nd World Heritage Committee meeting in Bahrain.

State-run Xinhua news agency reported a total of five natural sites were nominated to the World Heritage List this year.

 

The International Union for Conservation of Nature is the official advisory body on the natural sites of the UNESCO heritage committee said Mt Fanjingshan has demonstrated its aesthetic value as a natural heritage site, which is home to a diversity of high-quality forests, mountain scenery, wetlands, waterfalls, as well as a total of 450 vertebrate species.

China has about 52 world heritage sites.

The inclusion of Mount Fanjingshan in the World Heritage List results from the international recognition of the natural value and the conservation work of the wonder, and reflects the progress that China has achieved in terms of protecting its biological diversity, said Song Xiaolu, head of the Chinese Guizhou delegation to the World Heritage Committee meeting.

“We will continue to make an effort to protect and manage the natural heritage site of Mount Fanjingshan, and improve its basic infrastructure on the basis of the decision of the World Heritage Committee and the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage,” said Song.

The 42nd World Heritage Committee meeting, held from June 24 to July 4, will discuss 28 nominations to the World Heritage List, including five natural sites, 20 cultural sites and three mixed ones.
