Hierarchical Protection of Geological Heritage

According to the geological relics distribution characteristics andcombination rules of Hubei Huanggang Dabieshan Geopark, for the effectiveprotection of geological relics - the valuable and renewable resources, thegeological relics landscape has been divided into special preserve ofgeological relics, First-grade preservation zone(point), Secondary preservationzone(point) and Three-grade preservation zone these four grades.

1Special Preservation Point

The special preservation includes Taojia MountainUltrahigh eclogite of Yingshan Town, Huangtuling ancient continental nucleus ofLuotian Town.

4Three-gradepreservation zones

IncludingYingshan Longtan River Valley fluvial landform three-grade preservation zone,Macheng Jiulong Mountain landform three-grade preservation zone, LuotianQingtaiguan landform three-grade preservation zone and Luotian Bodaofenggeological landform three-grade preservation zone. In the three-gradepreservation zone, constructions and facilities are controlled in order, andcoordinates with surrounding environment. This partition regards the peripheralbuffer zone of the park, horizon range as three-grade preservation zone, formainly protecting the natural environment. In the preservation zone, mountaincutting and deforestation and polluting enterprises are forbidden, projectconstruction in this zone has to acquire the environmental requirements of thepark’s overall planning. The preservation barrier marks shall be settled on theboundary lines every 300 to 500 hundred meters, the geopark boder brands shallbe settled every 10 marks and the Geopark preservation billboards shall besettled on main crossings of the village in the park.
