Although China has made remarkable achievements in ecological governance, it is imperative to acknowledge the persisting challenges. Firstly, the ecological monitoring and early warning system exhibit noteworthy imperfections, and access to information is delayed. Secondly, data integration and analysis are slow, and management decision-making lacks timeliness and accuracy. Thirdly, the ecological governance model implemented by the government's central authority is not energetic, and cross-sectoral cooperation is insufficient. China's efforts to improve the effectiveness of ecological governance are hindered by these obstacles. As one of the most important technological developments in the digital age, research indicates that artificial intelligence can expand the coverage of ecological monitoring, increase the speed of information acquisition and processing in ecological governance, improve the timeliness and scientificity of ecological decision-making, and strengthen multi-party cooperation to promote innovation in ecological governance models. Applying artificial intelligence to China's ecological governance will definitely improve its effectiveness and promote sustainable development goals.
