Nice article! I'm not sure about the accuracy of various details, but it's good to see bird habitat being discussed in the main English paper.

Xiao ming, I wonder do you ever see articles like this in Chinese papers?

Could I encourage as many people as possible to add comments - show people really care!

Cheers

There was an article about Relict Gull on People daily early this month, but in oversea edition, that is for chinese people live in HK and overseas.

By China Daily standards the Yunnan Article seemed a pretty brave piece - but here are a couple of photographs they didn't get - illegal logging within the Tongbiguan National Nature Reserve. And it wasn't being done in a very secretive manner - those guys are using chain-saws - that can be heard miles away!!!!!
The Other picture is of a poacher carrying a rifle, within the Ruili Botanical Gardens!!!!!! - he covered it when he saw us but you can still easily see the butt in the photograph. One also shudders to think what's in that back-pack. This one we reported to the management - but they were busy playing mahjong.

More articles China Daily please. If you guys are are allowed to write this stuff then we know the problem is being acknowledged as serious by those who control this country. Maybe you could think of writing one entitled - "Where has all the water gone" - which would document how much of the free flowing water of Sichuan has been captured in the multitude of hydro-electric projects that are found in this province.

Just to clarify, I think Mike meant to post replies on the China daily site, not here.

Actually, Chen Liang, the reporter, is one of the top birders in China.
And there are other articles on China Daily about birding and mammal watching in China.

Here are two article about Tangjiahe NR, Sichuan.

Thanks for sharing these. I haven't really gotten in the habit of looking at the China Daily on-line, but these are interesting.

Thanks for posting! And welcome to our corner of the forum on China - hope you'll share whenever you like!
