BEIJING - China will take measures to step up wildlife protection in 2019, Monday's People's Daily reported.

The government will carry out 24 key projects to improve protection including adjusting the lists of key wild animals and plants under state protection, the newspaper quoted a work plan as saying.

The plan was unveiled at the second meeting of the inter-ministerial joint meeting on combating illegal trading of wildlife, a mechanism introduced in November 2016.

Other measures include a special campaign to fight against wildlife trafficking, such as those involving ivory.
