To better preserve the grasslands and reduce environmental degradation caused by grazing

, local herdsmen have returned their lands to nature and resettled in county urban areas. 上海419

In cooperation with China Pacific Insurance Co, the management committee guarantees the conservators with compens

 上海419品茶微信ation of up to 300,000 yuan ($43,600), covering injuries and accidents,” said Mou Yonghong, an o

fficial from Sanjiangyuan National Park’s Lancang River Management Committee.

A mechanism for livestock compensation has also been established: each lost cow is compensated with 500 to 1,500 yuan ($70-200), depending on age. 上海419品茶微信

To encourage more residents to take part in environmental protection, the lo

cal government has combined this goal with poverty alleviation. They offer positions of “e

 上海419cological conservators” for every registered family, paying each family a monthly subsidy of 1,800 yuan ($260). The co

nservators are responsible for patrolling the lands, collecting and disposing of garbage and monitoring wildlife.

With more people working as conservators, Tsewang Dorje, deputy head of the 上海419品茶微信

ecological management station of Namsei village, noted the overall environmental awareness of l

ocals has progressed, and environmental protection has gradually become part of their lives. 上海419

“We see little rubbish left on the mountains now. Every year bef

 上海419品茶微信ore the season for picking chongcao, we train the villagers and ask them to fill in the pits afte

r digging the caterpillar fungus so as to reduce damage to the pasture. They’ve also learned the habit of taking their food wa

ste down the mountains. Their conscientiousness has grown a lot,” he recalled.

“When people’s awareness of the environment improves, my work becomes 上海419

much easier,” echoed Lekga, who has worked as a conservator for three and a half years.

As the environmental status advances, the wildlife population increases. One problem, accordin 上海419品茶微信

g to locals, is damage to houses, livestock and people caused by animals such as brown bears and wolves.

To address such concerns, Sanj 上海419iangyuan National Park’s managem

ent committee has purchased insurance for more than 17,000 ecological conservators.

“I used to be a herder. I moved out from my pasture because I learned lives

tock cause damage to the land,” recalled 50-year-old Dorje Tsering, a Tibetan herd 上海419品茶微信

sman who moved to downtown Yeqing village in Yushu’s Zhidoi county around six years ago.

After relocation, Dorje Tsering and his family now receive an annual sub

sidy of 2,100 yuan ($300) each, paid for by the county government. The family also mak

es money by picking chongcao, or Chinese caterpillar fungus, every year in May and June, as many other villagers do. Cat

erpillar fungus is one of the most precious ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.
