Sanjiangyuan, a lake area on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, has expanded following a six-year-old government effort to prevent it from shrinking due to deteriorating environmental conditions. Sanjiangyuan has increased by 245 square kilometers in the past few years, according to Li Xiaonan, deputy director of the Sanjiangyuan Ecological Preservation and Construction Office.
