In far-away China an agreement was signed about cooperation between the Huanglong Natural Reservation and the Krka National Park

The Huanglong Natural Reserve from China, the Chengudu Biological Institute at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the University of Zagreb's Faculty of Science and the Krka National Park

signed an agreement on ecological protection and sustainable management in China on June 12, 2018.

In May 2014, China and Croatia have established an International Research Center for Environmental Protection that has built an important platform for the exchange of knowledge and cooperation between the two countries in the field of ecological protection and sustainable development. This agreement is a continuation of existing cooperation and opportunities for upgrading knowledge and sharing of experiences in nature conservation, sustainable management, marketing activities and ecological development.

The Huanglong Natural Reserve and the Krka National Park, though in different parts of the world, link a similar karst landscape and great biodiversity. They also face common challenges in protecting the sensitive ecosystem and sustainable development. The signed agreement provides opportunities for diverse cooperation, academic visits, joint studies and publications, which will contribute to better mutual understanding, sustainable development of the community, development of institutional mechanisms, further development of the visitor system, but above all to the preservation of biodiversity, environmental monitoring system, scientific research cooperation and exchange of information.

Huanglong (Chinese: pinyin: Huangglong, which means Yellow Dragon) in Songpan County (Sečuan, China) is a landscape stretching south of the Minshan Mountains, where the Fujiang River passes through Danyun Gorge, 150km northwest of Chengdu's capital city. This picturesque area is best known for its colorful pools of Huanglonggoua (Jaruga Yellow Dragon), which are made up of calcium deposits, but also in a diverse forest ecosystem, snowy peaks such as Xuebaoding (Snow Mountain Peak), the easternmost snowy peak in China; and waterfalls and thermal springs. That's why 60,000 ha of Huanglong were enrolled in the UNESCO World Heritage List in Asia in 1992 (hr.wikipedia.org).
