Fire put out

A FIRE that broke out in a petrochemical firm yesterday in Guangdong Province has been put out, and no casualties have been reported, local authorities said.

The emergency management department of the city of Zhuhai said the fire, which started at around 1:40 p.m. in Gaolan Port Economic Zone, was extinguished at around 3:50 p.m. Environmental monitoring stations have yet to report any abnormalities.

At least 40 fire engines and 200 firefighters have been dispatched to the site to put out the fire and rescue people.

Rangers compete

FOREST rangers from China and Russia will compete in the protection of the rare Siberian tiger in its habitat in a three-day competition that started yesterday in Northeast China’s Jilin Province.

Eighteen teams are expected to participate in outdoor activities, including spotting and dismantling various traps for the tigers.

In a ravine section about 1.5 km long in the Northeast Tiger and Leopard National Park, the organizers have set up 50 traps and 10 poaching tools that the rangers are expected to clear.

New species

AROUND 100 new species of medicinal plants were discovered by the end of 2019, according to a survey report on Chinese materia medica resources conducted by the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Among the newly discovered species, nearly 60 percent of them have potential medicinal value based on preliminary analysis, and there are also quite a few taxonomic discoveries and new records of the TCM resources, according to the report.

As of now, China has recorded information such as the types and distributions of nearly 13,000 kinds of wild medicinal resources nationwide, said the report.
