Zhou Jinfeng: To Avoid Serious Damage to Biodiversity by the Project, it is to Protect (III)

For another example, I recently heard an expert say that they built roads, digging caves, etc. At that time, they considered biodiversity in many aspects, in order to minimize the damage to biodiversity. This is a good example, and it is worth the effort to promote it.


For another example, in order to ensure the smooth migration of Tibetan antelope and other wild animals, the railway project has built a "green channel", but train drivers strictly prohibit whistle. During the construction of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, the investment in environmental protection alone amounted to 1.54 billion yuan. The builders also set up 33 "green channels" for wild animals, which is the first of the major engineering projects in China. The monitoring data of wildlife migration along the Qinghai-Tibet Railway since 2004 shows that the utilization rate of wildlife migration channels has gradually increased from 56.6% in 2004 to 100% after 2011. Wildlife activities in the area are free.


And if we want to do biodiversity engineering, we hope to protect nature. Recently, we have seen a concept called "strategic blank", which is to leave a place. For example, the local native vegetation was cut down and neat new trees were planted on the grounds of "beautiful look"; in some places, the trees in the south were moved to the north for planting, which caused the trees to wear "padded jackets" to prevent freezing in winter; some places plant a large number of trees in places that are not suitable for planting trees, destroying the original ecology and so on.


We must earnestly grasp the essence of "Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets." It should not be mechanized to understand and practice, and it will become a "green desert". This concept is essentially a biodiversity and vibrant habitat.


We must avoid major projects that destroy biodiversity. Avoiding destruction is conservation.


It is true that for people to lead a better life, some construction is always needed; but what should we do for major projects that have damaged biodiversity? At the same time, when it causes damage to biodiversity, we should carry out "offset", that is to say, we use other methods to "compensate" to offset, to reduce the negative effects of damage to biodiversity as much as possible.


This is something we should pay special attention to. Through the efforts of everyone, in the process of biodiversity construction, we must put the avoidance of major destruction first.


Therefore, when we are doing major projects for biodiversity conservation, we must pay attention to: "saving" is the most important principle. If it takes a lot of manpower, financial resources, and material resources to carry out the "major project of biodiversity conservation", I am afraid that most things will be counterproductive.


In the future, we hope to observe very carefully to understand the major projects of biodiversity conservation. It is hoped that such projects will be faithful to the definition and core guiding ideology of "biodiversity conservation". Even if the original intention is good, in the work, we should all insist on saving natural resources and protecting the environment and insist on giving priority to the protection of biodiversity.
