|Abstract: ||Urbanization has been transforming rural landscapes in a way that commonly favours
human activities.In the Lotus Lake National Wetland Park Project, the new Tieling
City development brought in new opportunities for the Lotus Lake, a degraded reservoir with severe water problems but provided habitat for 165 bird species. Instead of prioritizing human needs, the planning and design of this park has been directed by multi-disciplinary researches on water system and bird habitat requirements, aiming to preserve, restore and enhance this vanishing habitat. We have endeavoured to solve the following two major problems:
How to reverse the trend of degradation brought by natural succession, lack of water
during dry seasons, and pollution, meanwhile providing ecosystem functions such as irrigation and flood storage for people.
How to conserve and enhance biodiversity with existing limited habitat area and low
habitat diversity that are incapable of meeting the needs of the birds, especially the endangered ones.
The concept of sustainable development has been incorporated into the planning of this
park as well as that of the entire new City. The completed park is now providing larger,
safer, and more diverse habitat for wildlife,meanwhile providing critical ecosystem functions for the society.|
