China will have 75 percent of its wild animals and 80 percent of its wild plants on land under the national key protection system by 2025, the National Forestry and Grassland Administration said.

So far, the national key wildlife protection rate has risen to 74 percent, up from 71 percent last year, the administration said.

Its announcement took place on Sunday to coincide with the International Day for Biological Diversity, the theme of which this year was "Building a shared future for all life".

The administration said that China's achievements in protecting wild animals can partly be attributed to releasing wild species into nature reserves after artificial breeding.
