SHANGHAI, June 17 (Xinhua) -- More than 90 kinds of birds have settled in a wetland park in Shanghai Disney Resort after three years of operation, compared with around 60 kinds in 2017.

"Some birds, which only frequent western or northern China, will fly south to the Wishing Star Park in the resort during winter," said Dr. Jason Fischer, a bird expert.

The park, adjacent to the Disneyland and the hotels, was built for visitors to get close to the nature.

Consisting of a lake as well as coastal wetlands, bushes and woods, it provides a favorable living environment for animals.

"The Shanghai resort combines the experience of bird conservation in the United States with the characteristics of Chinese visitors, to create a bird protection land more suitable here," Jason said.

Opened in 2016, the resort is a joint venture between the Walt Disney Company and Shanghai Shendi Group. It is the first Disney resort destination on the Chinese mainland and the sixth in the world.
