Ancient human sites under close protection
From:  Writer:  Date:2008-08-12
 
Sanya, Hainan Province, recently decided to implement closed-end management of Luobi Cave, an ancient human site located in the southernmost tip of China. A detailed preservation plan will be issued at the end of the year. 50 million yuan has been allocated to implement the protective measures.

In recent years, without any protective meaures, Sanya's Luobi Cave has been damaged. The walls of the cave have been graffitied and the ancient rock carvings have been destroyed. A gentle slope within the preservation area was transformed into a banana plantation. At the foot of Luobi Cave, the ancient river bed looks just like a rubbish dump.
