Shenzhen has recorded 382 wild bird species, accounting for about one-third of the bird species recorded in China.

This week (March 20-26) marks the 42nd Bird Care Week for Guangdong and Shenzhen, themed “protecting wild birds and co-building green Guangdong.” Multiple governmental departments and social organizations joined hands to boost citizens’ knowledge on wildlife, and organize events including promoting wildlife protection and displaying graceful and charming images of birds.
