Mangroves are protected as a rare tree variety in the country, and can release a large amount of negative oxygen ion, which is good for the human body.

Hainan Island's tropical climate provides it with rich wetland resources, and is playing an important role in protecting the biological diversity in China, even the world. In 2013, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) offered an investment of $2,630, 000 to Hainan for the preservation of the province's wetland.
