Being the most concentrated area of ecological diversification, The Three-River's Source Area is named the resource of nature idioplasmic life-form in high and cold circumstance. Also this area has unique biological system and plant resource. Over 100 species animals, such as Tibetan wild donkey, antelope, snow leopard, black neck crane, are national protected animals. Besides forest with the highest elevation are also located in The Three-River's Source Area , where are dotted with coldtype shrub, lawn, grassland, swamps and lakes.
The Three-River's Source Area, is located in the centre of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau which in the south of Qinghai province and in the west of China. Three major rivers have their source in this area: the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the Mekong River. This area's geographical location is between 31o39' to 36o12' on north latitude and between 89o45' to 102o23' on east longitude, and the administrative district include Mt. Tanggula township, Golmud city and 16 counties of 4 Tibetan autonomous prefecture like Yushu, Guoluo, hainan and huangnan. The Three-River's Source Area hast a total land are of 302,500 square kilometer, which 43% of that of Qinghai province, and 97% of the districtal area of the 16 counties and 1 township. Its population has totaled 556 million now, among which 90% is Tibetan people and the rest is Han, Hui, Salar, and Mongolia people.
Being the most concentrated area of ecological diversification, The Three-River's Source Area is named the resource of nature idioplasmic life-form in high and cold circumstance. Also this area has unique biological system and plant resourse. Over 100 species animals, such as Tibetan wild donkey, antelope, snow leopard, black neck crane, are national protected animals. Besides forest with the highest elevation are also located in The Three-River's Source Area , where are dotted with coldtype shrub, lawn, grassland, swamps and lakes.
The Three-River's Source Area, being universally dotted by lakes, rivers, marshes, snow-topped mountains and glaciers, enjoys the fame of "Source of Rivers" and "Watertower of Asia " because of its most variations of wetlands with the vastest expansion of land on the highest altitude in the world. By the proportion of the drainage area, the Yellow River source area covers 167 million square kilometer, accounting for 46% in total area, 44% for the Yangtze River source area covering 159million square kilometer and 10% for the Mekong River of 37 million square kilometer. The area also provides the total water volume for the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the Mekong River with 25%, 49% and 15% respectively.
The Three-River's Source Area, is the centre and mainbody of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, 3335 to 6564metres above the sea level. The area mainly featured with mountainous region, zigzag mountain range and complex terrain. Local climate in the typical highland continental climate of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau climate system, is characterized by the successiveness of the cold season and hot season, the distinction between the dry and humid season, Small difference in annual temperature, great changes of daily humidity, long time of sunshine, strong radiation and no-variation of spring, summer, autumn and winter.
In history, the area was called "pure land" in sense of ecology and lives because of its beautiful natural environment, numerous lakes, a great number of wild animals and plant species. Nevertheless, the current situation has been changed. Over the past dozens of years, the whole ecological environment on Qinghai Plateau has been deteriorating obviously due to natural and human reasons. With warming of the global climate, The Three-River's Source Area, the center of the Plateaus is undergoing the melting of glacier and snow mountain year by year. Rivers lakes and damp lands are shrinking in areas and even dry up. The issues of grassland degeneration and barren grassland become more and more serious; large areas of grassland and nearly half of the forest have been seriously destroyed because of uncontrolled cutting for a long time. Pests and rats rampage, precious wild animas are killed, and unauthorized mining of gold and collecting of Chinese caterpillar fungus are seen everywhere. Over 20 percent of the species are threatened, which are much higher the world average level of 10 to 15 percent. Animals in some regions have to emigrate because of the bad environmental situation.
So the well-protected ecological environment of The Three-River's Source Area is significant not only for the protection of the water resource and ecological system and biodiversity in our country, but also for the society progress, economic development and improvement of life standard, nationality prosperity of Qinghai-Tibetan plateau.

Attention has been paid to the ecological environment in the SATTR during recent years, but most was from outsiders' points of view. The local people's participation is desperate in need. Nevertheless Chinese college students has been showing great interest in participating environmental protection tasks when the country is paying its price for environmental degradation along with urging economic developments. And this project will finally bring the students to Tibetan tableland so that they can experience present ecological status of Tibetan tableland and thus evoke the voices of local habitants.
Under this project, the students will be living and working together with local farmers and herds, exploring thoughts and needs of local Tibetans from their firsthand experiences. The youths and the Tibetans will began to work together to find solutions to environmental problems.
If you want to enjoy a life as a Tibetan Gaucho for some time, experience the ecological environment there first-handly, and most importantly put your part into the environmental protection in the SATTR, come to Tibetan tableland, and be prepared to the hardship you will experience.
Please log on www.green-web.org, and maybe you could win the competition to go to Tibetan tableland next year!
