China is another large country in Asia, though with a population of over 1.4 billion, unfortunately much of the wildlife has come under dramatic pressure. This is unnecessary, as the majority of the population live in a relatively small area, but for a range of reasons, much of the wildlife has been eradicated. The hope is that over time some of this might recover.

The number of species which still live here (either just clinging on, or thriving)

Here is a list of some of the species which can be seen in the country (there are 495 so we will only list some of the more exciting)

Asian elephant, Amur tiger, Bengal tiger (likely extinct South China Tiger), Indian Leopards, Indo Chinese Leopard, Amur Leopard, Panda bears, Sun bears, 4 subspecies of the brown bear (and the same of the black bear) 3 species of rhino (though possibly all gone)  Dugong, various macaques, snub-nosed monkey and langar species, a surprising range of gibbons, porcupines, squirrels (flying and not), beavers and several species of pangolin. There are also a whole range of whale species, that live in China waters.

There are obviously many more that have not been mentioned.
