This refers to wildlife nature reserves that are open to tourists. The reserves can be managed either under a comprehensive protection zone, which protects all types of animals living within the zone, or a single animal community protection zone. The Nairobi Wildlife Conservation Area in Kenya, which has a radius of 200 km, is an example of a comprehensive protection zone that protects all of the animals living in the tropical grassland. Tourists in cars can observe the daily lives of the wildlife. China’s Wolong Panda Natural Reserve in Sichuan, the Salamander Nature Reserve in Jing’an County in Jiangxi and the Long Leg Black Gibbons Nature Reserve in Bawangling in Changjiang County, Hainan, are single animal community protection zones.
