Recently, the government of Juexi Town, Xuzhou District, Yibin City, Sichuan Province sent a banner of “Flood and Disaster Relief without Borders, Selfless Dedication and True Love forever” to the Xuzhou District Work Station of the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) Fish Protection Center (Oppose Electro Fishing Union) in recognition of this team's contribution to the once-in-50-year flood in Yibin in August 2020.


On August 19, there was super heavy rainfall in the upper reaches of the Minjiang River. The mainstream of the Minjiang River suffered a once-in-a-time flood in more than 50 years. Many places in Yibin were hit by floods. After the flood, roads were destroyed in many places in Xuzhou District and it was difficult to deliver relief supplies in time. Seven volunteers from the Xuzhou District Work Station of the CBCGDF Fish Protection Center took active actions. They went to the dock of Juexi Town to clean up the silt and Nixi Town to help the government clean up the debris caused by the flood. Hou Sigen, the stationmaster of the Xuzhou District work station introduced: "At that time, traffic in many places was interrupted. The Juexi Town dork became a very important water channel. However, after the flood, the silt was too thick, which brought much inconvenience to the transportation of emergency supplies. Seven of our volunteers volunteered to help the government clean up. It took a whole day to clean. Everyone was exhausted when it was finished. After everyone went home and rested for a day, on the third day they found out that Nixi Town needed help. Our volunteers went to work for another day to help clean up the debris washed by the flood. "


Stationmaster Hou said: "As a team of volunteers, we should appear where the country needs it. In the future, we will continue to make efforts to protect aquatic animals, resolutely resist illegal fishing, and deeply cooperate with and assist the government to crack down. "
