Dynamic resource management and control is a technological innovation in resource management of Changqing Nature Reserve, which mainly uses the infrared camera to set up monitoring sites on major roads and ravines according to “two in openness and one in secret” method, to capture the image data of illegal entry personnel. The camera data will be collected in time, and then summarized and analyzed, to grasp information and dynamic activities rules of illegal entry personnel, and quickly and effectively crack down on illegal entry acts, so as to achieve a precise law enforcement that is based on the evidence, and change static management and protection into dynamic management and protection, improving the effectiveness of resource management and protection work.

Through the management and control of dynamic resources, the Nature Reserve has broken through the bottleneck of the traditional resource management and protection technology, and mastered the types of human interference and rules of their activity, defined key monitoring areas and key control population in community, thus illegal entry into the area has been significantly reduced, so that endangered species such as Ailuropoda melanoleuca in the reserve are scientifically and effectively protected.

China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda has strengthened its efforts in tackling hard-nut problems in science and technology. After the “three difficulties” being solved, including “difficulty in estrus”, “difficulty in conception”, and “difficulty in bringing up the young”, Ailuropoda melanoleuca breeding has stepped into the era of “better births and better cultivation”, in which pairing is optimized by strictly following phylogenetic relationships to promote and expand the genetic communication between Ailuropoda melanoleuca, and avoid inbreeding, so as to maximize the genetic diversity of artificial breeding Ailuropoda melanoleuca. In 2017, 30 births of Ailuropoda melanoleuca were bred and 42 cubs survived, with a population reaching to 270. Thus the self maintenance and development of the captive population of Ailuropoda melanoleuca has been achieved, which has laid a solid foundation for the wild Ailuropoda melanoleuca population rejuvenation.

Located in the northwest Taishun County of Zhejiang Province, Wuyanling National Nature Reserve, is the nature reserve of forest ecosystem and wild animals that takes Tragopan caboti, the world's endangered species as the main objects for protection. Tragopan caboti is endemic to China, the Grade I National Key Protected Animal Species, and rare and endangered birds in the world. Wuyanling National Nature Reserve is the only breed conservation and scientific research base for Tragopan caboti, and the place where the “Hometown of China Tragopan caboti” is located.

In recent years, Wuyanling Nature Reserve has established an academician expert workstation for the study of biodiversity in Wuyanling, and the Tragopan caboti population protection and breeding center. The Nature Reserve has effectively carried out Tragopan caboti field population protection under the technical guidance of Zheng Guangmei’s expert team of Beijing Normal University. Dynamic monitoring of wild population, habitat protection, placement of bionic artificial bird nests, artificial breeding and semi-wild domestication, publicity and education on biodiversity conservation, and other methods have been adopted to promote the populations of wild Tragopan caboti to steadily grow. Through continuous exploration and hard efforts, the number of wild Tragopan caboti populations in the southern part of Wuyanling has grown from a few dozen to more than 500, showing that its protection and management has achieved remarkable results.

Firmiana major is a rare and endangered plant endemic to China, which was listed as the second-class national key protected plant, in the “List of the Rare and Endangered Plants of China (First Batch)” issued in 1984. It has been considered as extinct in the wild, until in 2004, the staff of the Panzhihua Cycad National Nature Reserve Management Bureau found nearly 200 strains while patrolling, and promptly carried out the “salvage protection”.

In July 2017, the Kunming Institute of Botany found two wild populations of Firmiana major in Ninglang County and Yuanmou County of Yunnan Province, and conducted a more detailed survey and scientific data collection. Results showed that the number of population found in Ninglang County was up to one thousand strains, while population found in Yuanmou County only had a small number, only about a dozen.

At present, the protection of these two populations has attracted great attention from Yunnan Provincial Forestry Department, Chuxiong Prefecture and Lijiang Municipal Forestry Bureau, who have actively explored effective ways to establish small reserves or protection site for the conservation of the existing individual plants and their habitats, and carried out the ex-situ conservation, naturalization and population restoration on the basis of artificial high-efficiency breeding. Kunming Institute of Botany has collected the corresponding breeding materials, carried out researches on the embryo culture and tissue culture technology, which has made important progress.

Thuja sutchuenensis Franch is a tree species in the cypress family Cupressaceae. In the Red List of the World's Threatened Plants published by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) in 1998, Thuja sutchuenensis Franch was listed as one of three plant species that have been extinct in China.

In the first national survey of wild plant resources in October 1999, the wild populations of the “disappeared” Thuja sutchuenensis Franch was found in Chengkou County, and the trees with cones were sampled. In 2000, the 3rd issue of Plants announced to the world that “Thuja sutchuenensis Franch is not extinct.”

The Management Bureau of the Daba Mountain National Nature Reserve, Chongqing, has been working on the rescue and breeding technology of the Thuja sutchuenensis Franch for many years, and great progress has been made in the rapid propagation and cuttage technology of Thuja sutchuenensis Franch, which has laid a good foundation for the conservation and protection of this extremely endangered species in the world.

The Bureau has Carried out surveys on Thuja sutchuenensis Franch resources, strengthened the in-situ conservation of Thuja sutchuenensis Franch, conducted breeding experiment on sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction simultaneously, and expanded Thuja sutchuenensis Franch breeding, which has prepared plenty of seedlings for Thuja sutchuenensis Franch transplanting and field planting.(Department of Wildlife Conservation and Nature Reserve Management, State Forestry Administration)
