The wetland type is mainly light water marsh wetland, which includes a variety of wetland habitat types such as lakes and islands, and the natural landscape of the wetland is beautiful. The wetland is rich in biodiversity, with 290 species of plants and 177 species of birds, and tens of thousands of waterfowl breeding here every year, including many rare and endangered species such as the Tan-Ting Crane and the White Pillow Crane.
