China’s Marshes Desertified With 200 Lakes Dried Up

Posted by Author on October 19, 2007

Chinascope Magazine, 10/17/2007-

According to China News Service, the process of desertification is accelerating for China’s most beautiful wetland prairie, the Ruoergai Marshes. [1] It is now difficult to find bogs, and the desertified areas are increasing at an annual rate of 11.65%. With over two hundred out of three hundred lakes dried up, the wetlands have shrunk to less than 40% of their original area.

Chinese and foreign experts regard the Roergai Marshes as “the kidney of China’s west plateau.” The biggest plateau moss land is one of the six biggest prairies and is the important water head of the Yellow River.

Experts point out that over grazing, an over population of rats and insects, climate changes, and digging in order to drain water are the main causes of Ruoergai’s accelerated desertification over the past decades.
