China Matters presents China's First National Urban Wetland

When it comes to the city of Hangzhou, you might think of the West Lake in the 
first place as its landmark. However, right beside the Lake lies another 
valuable ecological resort.

Xixi National Wetland Park, situated in western Hangzhou and about 5 km from the
West Lake, is a rare urban wetland. The entire park covers an area of about 11.5
square kilometers, 70% of which is water area. Six rivers thread through the
park, while countless streams crisscross the scene.

It is now the first and only national wetland park in China combining urban
life, farming and culture. Nurtured by Xixi Town built more than 1,100 years
ago, Xixi Wetland has become a cradle of fishing, bamboo and tea culture. Thanks
to the wisdom and efforts of traditional craftsmen living in the town, the
wetland fosters a bunch of intangible cultural heritage items.

In Xixi National Wetland Park, Josh meets a craftswoman who has been devoted to
making bamboo basket for over 40 years and learns the basic skills of basket

He also talks to a leading researcher in the wetland and understands more of how
the wetland was transformed from a marsh into an ecological park. The video is
filmed and produced by China Matters.
