The volunteer team also distributed natural education materials to the children during the activities. While learning how to recognize birds, students also gained the important consciousness and actions of loving birds, protecting birds, rivers, and wetlands, and jointly participate in the protection of the natural ecological environment.


During the activity, the volunteer team led the students to the scene of Ye River to tell the students about the river and wetland and the knowledge of bird inhabits. When a group of black storks flew over the top of their heads at Ye River, the students yield excitedly that finally, they saw the black stork, the world's endangered species and the national first-class protected animal.


During the period, the Green Children Base volunteers unexpectedly witnessed someone was doing electric fishing at Ye river. They immediately warned the guy on site and stopped his electrofishing behavior, and also reported the incident to the relevant departments. Therefore, the senior director analyzed that electrofishing causing serious damage to aquatic ecosystems. Once the water resources are affected, the aquatic ecosystem will be damaged, which will lead to environmental deterioration and ecological imbalance.
