BEIJING, June 29, 2022 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

The "Hinggan League - Acer mono" Cup World Savanna Photography Exhibition 
kicked off in Beijing on the afternoon of June 28.

The exhibition is co-sponsored by China Photographers Association, the Cultural 
Transmission Center of the China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration, 
Inner Mongolian Foundation of Literary and Art Circles, and the Publicity 
Department of the CPC Hinggan League Committee. This photography exhibition 
will focus on curating public submissions of photos capturing the ecological 
protection achievements of this internationally common vegetation type that is 
the savanna, in doing so facilitating the joint construction of a beautiful 
home where mankind and nature can coexist harmoniously across the world, 
according to the Organizing Committee of the "Hinggan League - Acer mono" Cup 
World Savanna Photography Exhibition.

The opening ceremony also displayed some of the excellent photos curated in the 
2021 iteration, vividly displaying the beauty of Acer mono across the seasons, 
telling touching stories about Hinggan League's efforts to safeguard ecological 
security in northern China and build a beautiful China. The photography 
exhibition will last for a month, and works will be exhibited in Happy Valley 
in Beijing, Tianjin and other places successively.

Hinggan League is located in the northeast of Inner Mongolia in China, where 
Acer mono trees cover an area of about 666.7 km2 in the vast savanna. Every 
autumn, the maple-like leaves of Acer mono turn fiery-red. This enchanting 
natural beauty has earned both Hinggan League and its Acer mono species a high 
reputation in Inner Mongolia, as proven by the saying, which goes, "visit Alxa 
League's Populus euphratica forests in the west, and enjoy the view of Hinggan 
League's Acer mono trees in the east".

Over the recent years, Hinggan League has been vigorously pushing the 
development of ecological civilization, while also actively exploring a new 
path of high-quality development by giving priority to ecology and pursuing 
green development. For these endeavors Hinggan League has won such honors as 
National Unity and Progress Demonstration League of China, National Ecological 
Civilization Development Demonstration League, and Base for the Innovative 
Practice of "Lucid Waters and Lush Mountains Are Invaluable Assets".
