Poyang Lake – China

2

Cattle graze on the dried bed of Poyang Lake in November 2016. The lake is an important wildlife sanctuary, providing habitats for half a million migratory birds. It is a favourite destination for migrating Siberian cranes and is home to the endangered finless porpoise, known locally as the jiangzhu. The current rate of population decrease is likely to spell extinction for the porpoise by 2025.
