(ECNS) -- "Sanjiangyuan" literally refers to the source of three significant rivers in China: Yangtze River, Yellow River, and Lancang River.
It is rich in ecological resources.
Some endangered species like snow leopards, black-necked cranes, and wild donkeys inhabit the area.
In recent years, climate change and global warming have weakened the regional ecosystem.
Lakes and wetlands are shrinking and drying up.
Poaching and a lack of legal knowledge have endangered animals here.
In 2017, Sanjiangyuan ecological court was founded.
With efforts made by court members, the ecological environment has been greatly improved, with wild life protected.
