Units at all levels and volunteers were organized to protect migratory birds from March 10 till May 10.

Birds are envoys of the blue sky, angels of wetlands, guardians of forests, and important carriers of ecological culture. Taking the opportunity of the Bird-loving Week, Gui calls for more people involving in birds loving and protecting.
