Qinhuangdao is bounded by the Yanshan Mountains in the north and the Bohai Sea in the south. The stretching and undulating mountains in the territory are in sharp contrast with the coastal plains, which is conducive to the identification for the passing birds, making it an important station for the migratory birds.
According to the statistics, there are more than 1,300 species of birds in China, and more than 450 species in Qinhuangdao, accounting for 30% of the total number of the birds in China, including 68 species of nationally protected birds. Qinhuangdao is one of the four major bird watching destinations in the world, which is known as “Mecca of the birdwatchers.”
