A five year memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Paulson Institute, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Hebei Provincial Forestry Department and Hebei Luannan County Government has been signed aiming to protect the Nanpu coastal wetland, one of the most important staging habitats for migratory waterbirds along Bohai Bay in China.
Over the past 50 years, China has lost more than 60 percent of its natural coastal wetlands.
