Peking University in Beijing is officially reviewing a proposal to set up a mini nature reserve on the campus to protect the ecosystem1, reports the Beijing Youth Daily.
 
《北京青年报》报道,北京大学正在考虑一项在校内建立一座小型自然保护区以保护生态环境的提议。
 
The proposal, brought forward by Peking University students and their teachers, first appeared on an official WeChat account, sparking heated debate at the university.
 
The proposed 42.5 hectare mini nature reserve would be designed to protect the animals and plants that currently inhabit the campus. The proposal would ban the use of herbicides in the preserve, and also allow for dead foliage2 to compost naturally, rather than being removed.
 
If approved, the mini reserve at Peking University would be the first of its kind in China.
 
Different from traditional nature reserves which would limit access, the Peking University proposal would emphasize the idea of a harmonious3 co-existence between humans and nature.
 
Research at the university for the past 15 years has determined4 there are 300 different species of animals and 470 different varieties of plants living on the campus grounds. A number of endangered animals, including Golden Eagles, Ninox Scutulata and Otus Sunia have been discovered living on the Peking University campus.
