the fake preservation

firefly transfer


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?
