Sanjiangyuan ecological migrants begin new life
10:53, October 30, 2009  

Since the ecological protection and construction project in the Sanjiangyuan area was launched in 2005, nearly 50,000 herders have moved into urban communities by abandoning their nomadic life.

Living in New Qumalai Village in the suburbs of Golmud City, Qinghai Pronvice, are 1,700 ecological migrants from the Sanjiangyuan area. They were all residents of former Qumalai Village in Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai. Thanks to the government's preferential policies, the villagers soon became used to the new environment after moving to Golmud.

At present, apart from receiving government subsidies, they are also earning incomes by carving marnyi stones and making ethnic dresses and accessories.
