Geopark > National Geoparks of China

  In the National Geopark of China logo, the circle represents the Earth, the green mountain constitutes the "moluntain" in hieroglyphic writing, and the river in the middle constitutes the "water" in hieroglyphic writing, thus representing the mountains and rivers of China. The dinosaur represents aspects of the geopark other than rocks, such as wildlife and fossils.

Covering such a large area, China is rich in geological resources and its geoparks have been developing rapidly, over 200 national geoparks established and approved by the Ministry of Land and Resources. To become a National Geopark of China, a geopark has to fulfill a comprehensive set of regulations and requirements. Candidate geoparks are assessed by professionals from the National Government. Successful candidates are designated National Geoparks.

At present, there are 41 UNESCO Global Geoparks in China.
