China to build two wildlife conservation museums


China will build two wildlife museums for storage of confiscated wildlife products, research and education, said a senior forestry official.

The two museums, one in Beijing and the other in the central province of Hunan, will be centers for protecting endangered wildlife species and showcasing the country's achievements in cracking down on illegal wildlife trading, said Chen Fengxue, deputy director of the State Forestry Administration.

A ground-breaking ceremony was held for the wildlife museum in Changsha, provincial capital of Hunan, on Thursday.

After completion, the two museums will provide a professional platform for promoting wildlife protection, said Chen at the ceremony.
