In recent years, on the premise of protecting the scarce wetland resources of the Bortala River, Wenquan County has focused on wetland eco-tourism, rationally utilizing the landscape and cultural resources of wetland parks, and making urban wetlands rich in regional characteristics. It is a wetland park and a popular science base for wildlife conservation, which integrates functions such as leisure and health preservation, cultural display, and landscape viewing.

On June 10, 2022, with the sun shining, the lake is sparkling, and the natural secondary forest is verdant and unique in the Yili River National Wetland Park in Qapqal Xibe Autonomous County, northwest China’s Xinjiang. Large reeds are connected with the wetland water surface, and waterbirds play and forage on the rippling water surface, creating a beautiful scenery. In recent years, Qapqal County has continuously strengthened the ecological restoration and improvement of wetland parks. There are 88 kinds of local characteristic plants such as jujube, sea-buckthorn, tamarisk and elm and so on, attracting a large number of wild birds such as egrets, gray cranes, mallards and swans to come and live.
