Recently, the citizens reported that there were illegal bird catching by Zhang Net in Huangcun Elementary School, Lincun and other places in the high-tech zone. On the 22nd, police officers, protection station technicians, district heads and other law enforcement personnel from the Forestry Branch of the Municipal Public Security Bureau took an active action to join the voluntary flight protection Together, they successfully demolished 3,600 meters of bird nets together and strengthened the protection of wild birds in our city.
In a dense forest in Baijiu Village, Baisha Street, Jiangcheng District, the National Forestry and Grass Guard Flying Commissioner removed the illegally caught birding nets, carefully removed the live birds hanging on the nets, and released them.
The reporter noticed that the nets of the bird-catcher net were thinner, and it was harder to find in the forest. Birds were easily recruited, and some of them still had their bodies hanging on the Internet. Staff told reporters that many people's awareness of protecting wildlife and the legal system are relatively weak, and the phenomenon of hunting birds by cloth nets occurs from time to time.
Volunteer volunteer Liu: Some people think that it doesn't matter if I do n’t catch owls, which are the key animals protected in the country. In fact, no matter what kind of bird is caught, it ’s ecological destruction. In Guangdong, we are currently in a no-hunting period and no-hunting area. It is against the law to catch birds and set up nets.
It is understood that, in order to protect migratory birds migrating south in the fall and winter, the Municipal Forestry Bureau has launched a special campaign to crack down on migratory birds and other wild animal resources in autumn and winter from September 27 to December 31 this year. In the past few days, the Municipal Forestry Bureau and the Municipal Forestry Police cleared a total of 8100 meters of bird catching nets throughout the city, confiscating a batch of bird catching tools, dispatching 354 police officers, 105 vehicles, 14 bird protection publicity activities, and collecting wild animals. 89 birds were released, 91 wild birds were released, 2 criminal cases were filed, and 3 people were detained, effectively combating illegal hunting of wild birds and protecting the ecological diversity of wild animals.
Chen Junxu, deputy director of the Municipal Wildlife Protection Management Office: We will step up publicity efforts in the follow-up, and also call on the public to see that Zhangwang can catch 110 birds to help us clean the net. Generally, wild birds may have epidemic diseases. It is better not to buy and sell wild birds in the market.
