More than 500 people were educated through the two projects, and more than 20% of them are the females. 2003-now, more than 50 foreign students and officials from abroad come to Shapotou station to learn the techniques about combating desertification every year. And now, more than 10 scientific projects relating ecological restoration in desert areas are conducted.
