Jinhua’s first natural education museum, focused on nature conservation and the theme of “harmonious coexistence,” will open on September 1. Located in the Nanshan Provincial Nature Reserve in Wucheng District, visitors can see exhibits of nationally protected wildlife and plants. The museum also offers special audio-visual displays featuring these national treasures.

“Animals such as the black muntjac, pangolin, Cabot’s tragopan, and white-necked long-tailed pheasant are as precious as giant pandas in China. These national treasures have been frequently spotted in the Nanshan Nature Reserve over the last few years. This shows they have a healthy population in the area. As research in the reserve continues, more species have been found this year,” said Zhuang Qianjin, the person in charge of the Nanshan Nature Reserve’s Museum.

In April 2020, the Nanshan Nature Reserve was officially set up with the approval of the Zhejiang Provincial Government. Located at the source of the Baisha River in Jinhua’s mountains, it spans 9549.82 hectares. It’s the largest nature reserve in Zhejiang and one of its most diverse areas. The reserve is rich in wildlife, including numerous rare species. So far, 28 nationally protected animals, 28 key protected plants, and 91 endangered plants have been identified there.

The Nanshan Nature Reserve’s Education Center is on the second floor of the roller-skating hall at the Jinhua Water Sports Center on West Second Ring Road. It’s open daily from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Citizens can visit for free. (By Sheng Zan)
