the fake preservation

firefly transfer

為了讓市民在城市裡能看到一片螢光閃閃的夜景,近日中國山東省的青島中山公園流行買螢火蟲來放生。公園每週從廣西購入了5000隻螢火蟲,可是,一半的螢火蟲到了青島不到三天就會死掉。螢火蟲通常只在生態環境保護得很好的地方才會出現,青島這座生態環境十分惡劣的城市,螢火蟲根本法生存。青島患了每一個發展城市的通病,就是一邊在推行保護環境的政策,另一邊又在開發房屋道路制造破壞。其實所推行的環境政策只是用作粉飾掩蓋發展帶來的污染,放再多的螢火蟲,倒不如花錢在減少污染上吧。

recently there is a trend of buying fireflies then releasing them to the wild at the Tsingdao Zhongshan Park in the Shandong Province in China. to create a great night view of glistening fireflies, the park would buy 5000 fireflies from Guangxi every week, but 50% of them would die within three days. firefly is a very special organism that could only be found in a well preserved natural environment. the death toll of these fireflies reflected the lack of environmental preservation effort in Tsingdao. it is plagued with the common mistake every developing city has – preserving the environment while destroying it. These so-called environmental preservation measures are merely the cover for the destruction it brings in developing the city. instead of staging a show of fireflies, why not put more effort in reducing pollution and destruction?
