Pyongyang, September 23 (KCNA) -- The DPRK is pushing ahead with the work for sustained use of wetlands in a far-sighted way under the plan for protecting the ecological environment.

This wetland covering a vast area of tideland and salt and paddy fields is largely affected by tidal difference of the West Sea of Korea. Its southwest faces the sea and the other parts are surrounded by mountains with height of about 200 meters above the sea level. The wetland was formed by crustal movement.

Observed there until now are 14 species of water birds in danger of global extinction, eight species of water birds like black-faced spoonbill, hooded crane and Far-eastern curlew which account for more than 1 percent of their global or regional numbers, and animals and plants like sea-blite, community of Salicornia europaea, roedeer and weasel.
