From the chinadaily here:
“BEIJING – China’s fragile coastal ecosystems are severely threatened by human activities, and pollution and environmental degradation have created a “grave situation”, according to a report released by the State Oceanic Administration. Since the 1990s, more than 20,000 hectares of wetland in China have disappeared every year on average, according to the 2011 China Ocean Development Report, released on April 29 by the administration’s China Institute for Marine Affairs.”
