Unique ecological landscapes in the Geopark are due to the special location and climate. There is West Lake National Nature Reserve, in which wetland ecosystem and desert ecosystem provide good environment for over 80 plant species. The Populus diversifolia forest, known as “hero tree in desert”, covers hundreds of thousands of acres full of life. There are also 196 species of wild animals, including wildlife (such as Camelus ferus, Ciconia nigra, Otis tarda, Otis tetrax and Aquila chrysaetos) under special state protection. This is also a free base for Equus caballus and important place for wildlife to live and breed in western China. This is the first barrier for wind protection sand fixation in western Gansu, and has become an eco-tourism area for natural landscape sightseeing, ancient silk road experience and desert customs feeling.
