On March 19, 2017, Governor of Hunan Province Xu Dazhe came to the Hunan Forest Botanical Garden to inspect the ecological construction, wildlife protection, and forest fire prevention work there. He asked the park to further strengthen self-building, create a better Hunan image of strong ecological power, and promote mass participation in ecological construction.
Xu visited various kinds of botanical areas, the world famous flower square, monument to green heroes, and wildlife rescue and breeding center in the park. He listened carefully to the introduction of the ecological civilization construction, wildlife protection, and eco-tourism situation, to learn more about the garden’s management conditions and future development ideas.
He spoke highly of the botanical garden’s achievements in scientific research, species conservation, eco-tourism, and scientific education and publicity. The province has yielded remarkable results in forestry development in recent years, he said, adding that the park, as a epitome of the development of Hunan forestry, should better play its leading and demonstration role while maintaining its strength in forestry studies, to build itself an important platform displaying Hunan’s power of ecological civilization. Mass participation in ecological construction should be promoted to let the people share common fruits and fuel the province’s building of an ecological power, he added.
