Mundok white crane habitat

February 27, 2023

Mundok white crane is one of the migratory birds that winter in the DPRK.

The bird lives under government protection in the tideland on the estuary of the Chongchon River and the wide plains of Tongnim-ri and Ryongo-ri in Mundok County, South Phyongan Province.

The area is an ideal place for food, breeding and inhabitation for the abundance of such plants as reed, cattail, Suaeda japonica, sea blite and Salicornia europaea. The habitat is now under the protection of the nature conservation policy of the DPRK.

Over 180 species of migratory birds live there.
