Wuda Lianchi Nature Reserve, China (mainland)
KBA status: Global/ Regional to be determined
Rationale for qualifying as KBA: Global/ Regional KBA status to be determined: a KBA of international significance that was identified using previously established criteria and thresholds for the identification of Important Bird and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs) and for which available data indicate that it does not meet global KBA criteria and thresholds set out in the Global Standard.
Priority for re-assessment against the Global KBA Standard.
For further details on this site and its significance as an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area, see here.
Located in Wuda Lianchi City. The IBA is on the plain at the western edge of the Xiao Hinggan Ling mountains. Ancient volcanic activities formed five linked lakes (“Lianchi”), with a total area of 1,800 ha. There is agricultural land around the lakes, and woodland in the riverine lowlands.
