Rare bird haven

SHANGHAI'S Chongming County was named a sanctuary for the rare hooded crane by the China Wild Animal Protection Association. The bird is listed as an endangered species, with fewer than 10,000 in the world. Chongming serves as home to 120 to 140 such cranes every year due to its ecological environment and animal-protection measures.
