Female rangers guard clear waters and lush mountains in Diqing

Yang Hongcheng

Bazhu, a mountain village in northwest Yunnan's Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, now has 98.2 percent of forest coverage. It is like an emerald, inlaid in the lush primeval forest, where truffles, gastrodia tubers and a lush undergrowth abound. Villagers have become rich through edible roses, honey, medicinal herbs and rural tourism.

The village's female rangers have been guarding the ecosystem for the last 15 years. "The clear waters and the lush mountains are our most valuable assets. To protect the environment is to protect our treasure trove," said He Guifang, one of the female rangers.

In 2004, He became a ranger, together with other women from 21 settlements in Bazhu. Fifteen years on, cherishing the belief that human beings and nature should coexist in harmony, the female rangers have an irreplaceable role to play in the village's environmental protection.

When patrolling the forest, the female rangers are expected to stop illegal logging and the plundering of wildlife resources, clean up the streams, collect garbage, as well as introducing the importance of ecological protection to other villagers.

In recent years, the improving ecosystem in the village is attracting more and more tourists. The villagers have seen their incomes increase at a remarkable rate. Currently, the average household in Bazhu deposits more than 10,000 RMB (US$1415) in the bank.
