Opened on April 2010, Dongtan wetland is the venue of a habitat modification program to recover the population. As the largest natural river wetland in the Yangtze River basin, its environment is suitable for the growth and reproduction of the species. 


It is an important stopover for migratory birds, such as white storks, tundra swans, hooded cranes and black-faced spoonbills. More than 150 species of birds live there.


Besides, Chinese alligators can now be seen at Dongtan Wetland Park through to October (2017) as the critically endangered species end months of hibernation. Night tours to observe the alligators would be held during the summer time in 2017.
