DPRK Strives to Protect Biodiversity

[nggallery id=70]The Workers’ Party of Korea and the DPRK government consider the protection of natural environment as one of the patriotic works for the nation’s prosperity.

In the country there are many nature conservations and sanctuaries, including areas of Mts. Paektu, Myohyang and Oga. And rare and extinctive animals and plants are designated as natural monuments.

The days from November to next March each year are set as a period for protection of forests and underground resources and the days from March to July as a period for protection of useful animals.

The government has built many nurseries and farms for saplings, fries and such animals as pheasant and roe deer throughout the country.

We’ll work harder to improve the nation’s natural environment and conserve natural resources while stepping up international exchanges and cooperation for protection of biodiversity.
