In 2000, the Chinese government recognised that an environmental crisis was underway and created the Sanjiangyuan National Nature Reserve, stretching for more than 140 square miles over China’s Tibetan plateau. In recent decades, as China’s cities and economy have grown rapidly, the plateau has been increasingly explored for resource extraction and economic development. The infrastructure necessary to move supplies and resources has further altered the landscape as road construction projects cut through the plateau.
