Eco club students’ successful field trip
One thing that caught the attention of the students was the fence protecting the lake. The children clarified from the local herders why the fence was breaking up, and how the fence protects the lake effectively. "Fencing the lake increases the water level. But we need to build a more durable fence, and the existing fence is collapsing because of a herd of livestock" said the herders. According to the eco club students, there are a large number of dogs around the lake Binder which belong to the herders. The dogs are danger to the water bird eggs destruction. Therefore, herders agreed to raise awareness for this problem. Also, the lake security guard is to be chosen after a survey among herders.
The eco club students did not just observe, but they developed a curriculum named “Lake birds” and the eco club’s annual work plan. Furthermore, the crane conservation program will be extended to peer groups.
