seasonal sale

又到了候鳥遷移的季節,中國湖南省亦有一個候鳥大賣場。村民會捕捉遷徙中的候鳥,帶到當地菜市場售賣,並根據牠們頸的長度來定價。受害的鳥群中亦包括了很多瀕危品種,牠們都慘被當作糧食。候鳥在中國的保護顯然並不足夠,全球數十億隻候鳥每年都會經過這地區,希望地方政府立即採取更完善的鳥類保護措施,讓候鳥能夠安全、自由的遷徙!

it’s the migration period and there is a big seasonal sale in Hunan province of China. villagers trap and hunt for migratory birds that passing throughout their area. these birds are sold in their markets with price set based on measuring the length of their necks. it was said short-neck birds are tastier than long-neck birds.  many of these birds are endangered and villagers are unaware of this. there is clearly not enough protection for these migratory birds in china. this area is one of the eighth routes for billions of migratory birds in the world, and something has to be done now to protect them flying free and safe above the sky of china.
