  Futou Lake is the third largest lake in Hubei province, an important aquatic species breeding ground and an overwintering migrant bird’s habitat in the southern Hubei. Ever since the 1990s, the criss-cross purse seine covered 70% of the total area of Futou Lake, resulting in continuous deterioration of the water ecological environment and sharp decrease of wild animals and plants. In 2016, the local government started a tough fight against illegal construction in Futou Lake, thus “bamboo forest array” on the water disappeared and the Futou Lake restored to long-lost green rippling lake.

  Pan Mingsheng, the chief engineer of the Administrative Committee of Xiangyang Lake National Wetland Park, said that now they have thoroughly dismantled the purse seines in the wetland, removed 5000 mu of pearl cultivation, eliminated more than 2000 mu of alien species, and dredged 2-kilometer-long waterway. At present, the water ecological environment is improving sustainably, and a diversity of national and provincial protected birds choose to overwinter here.
