The China State Forest Administration and the WWF, one of the world's largest independent conservation organizations, signed a memorandum of understanding on Wednesday on Shanhai's Chongming Island, their first MOU to include coastal wetland protection.

China has made efforts to protect wetlands across the country, including restoration and protection projects and promoting awareness, according to the State Forest Administration.

In the past decade, more than 200 billion yuan ($31.4 billion) has been invested in protecting and restoring wetlands across China, according to the administration.
