One of the consequences of rapid economic development in China has been the effect on the environment, specifically on animals. Economic development has improved an individual's standard of living. However, economic development, along with a growing population, has threatened and invaded many animals' living spaces. As a result, many animals are near extinction because their environment has been destroyed.

To maintain ecological balance with economic development, the Chinese government tries to stress the importance of animal protection and has taken measures to protect animals. One of these measures has been the establishment of animal preserves to protect endangered animals, including the country's national treasure, the Panda. The government has also tried to raise people's awareness to protect animals. However, many people ignore this issue during good economic times.
