Xingkai Lake National Nature Reserve

A complex wetland system including grassland, marshes, lakes, and forests, contiguous with Russia to the south across the Songacha River. The site, at the northern end of the large lake, provides important breeding habitat for a number of globally threatened species, including the endangered Grus japonensis,
and some 65 fish species and more than 460 higher plant species are present. Every spring, about 1200 migratory cranes of 5 species stopover at the site. A transboundary nature reserve agreement (including joint training) was established in 1992 with the Khanka Nature Reserve in Russia, with the help of the International Crane Foundation, and another in 1996 for management of the whole Xingkai Lake
