site visits death of egrets, wetlands, at least more than a hundred dead
yesterday morning, a few enthusiastic friends and I went to Mirror Lake with Wetland Park, site visits egrets fate of life and death.
from afar, the woods, full of egrets dense stand, there are many flying in the sky, like the white wizard.
There is a special bird-watching forests. We entered, we saw an egret, it looks like that thin, feebly struggling in the mud, issued by a slight sound, is crying.
a friends gently walked over, wanted to give it food to feed point. It has been dying, terrified eyes flashed.
in a ditch next to a young egret is to drink water, walk stumbled. Many also fall in the water, fluttering their wings, flew up into the trees trying again, but you can not fly.
we all feel very sad, after all, life.
then further away, we see a more shocking scene. Forest, soil, ditches, white body lying everywhere, due to hot weather, the trees emit bursts of rancid.
we forget about the rough, a few hundred Area only add up to at least the death of egrets.
Mirror Lake Wetland Park is the first National Urban Wetland Park, Zhejiang Province, the mountain vegetation is rich in tens of thousands of egrets have come here to survive, many of them still second-class protected animals – Egret.
But now, a large number of egrets died, the cause of death is a mystery.
nearby villagers told us, egrets may be starved to death. Because the environment here is good, more and more egrets to come here to survive, egrets year after year, the food is not enough. Park security guard said, a few years ago a large park surrounded by rice fields, egrets worry about food. But in recent years, many specialized households contracted farmland, replanting ornamental trees and grapes, so egrets living space narrowing.
but Mirror Lake wetland management at the Lvzhu Ren has a different view. He said he personally believes that the recent hot weather, some egrets are hot dead. “It is also possible, in the vicinity of farmland, probably some egrets eat the crops with pesticides lead to death.” Users have also made such a guess.
coroner initially determined that: hot weather, weak egrets failure and died
a just dying egret, a white body with users … … photographs taken of the field are sent to the Internet, called Save the egrets, and strongly urge the Government to establish the truth.
egret’s death, blame?
Shaoxing forestry sector involved in the investigation soon. Shaoxing Mayor Qian Jianmin accountability, demands thorough investigation of the matter.
noon yesterday, Shaoxing City Forest Public Security Bureau sent to the scene of the two bodies of egrets, forwarded to autopsy in order to unlock the cause of death.
last night, Shaoxing City, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Bureau issued a report on the autopsy, said: one of them, less food the stomach, the other basically no food, gut emptiness; with heart failure, liver swelling big phenomenon; not found in other pathological changes, the basic rule out diseases and food poisoning. According to anatomical findings and on-site investigation, the egret is the cause of death: in the hot climatic conditions, weak constitutions egret narrow range of activities, can not procure enough food, extreme compensatory body organs, causing the body failure and died. It is understood that, in order to prevent the recurrence of a similar phenomenon, Shaoxing City Forestry Bureau and Mirror Lake Wetland Management Office agreed: First, to establish warning signs in the area of ??education to keep visitors away from watching the egret, egrets do not disturb the normal habitat; two per days of feeding fish shrimp, make sure to procure enough food egret; third is to strengthen the inspection, if found frail, injured egret, promptly sent to the wildlife rescue center city ambulance.
