Shanghai continues to carry out the chongming Dongtan cygnet species conservation scientific research project


At the beginning of 2022, Shanghai Wildlife and Nature Reserve Research Center actively promoted the project of “Selection of wintering habitat and Risk assessment of Avian influenza for cygnets in Chongming Dongtan”, and recently completed the production and field placement of the first cygnet.The project is the chongming dongtan reserve applications Huang Bohai world natural heritage action plan for three years, an important part of wild cover research center and the chongming dongtan nature reserve management affairs center to carry out in-depth cooperation, as a whole wildlife conservation and urban public health security, about the rare and endangered birds whistling winter special study,These include global migration routes, habitat selection and disease carrying of cygnets.At the same time, according to the characteristics of cygnet species, the existing bird capture method was innovatively optimized, and a specific feasible scheme was developed to wear satellite tracking equipment for cygnets.In addition, advanced scientific research means such as uav remote control monitoring and satellite remote sensing technology were used to preliminarily explore the behavioral response characteristics of cygnet population to human disturbance.In the next step, Yebao Research Center will continue to promote the project. Satellite tracking equipment will be used to collect the spatial activity sites of cygnets, analyze the habitat space utilization pattern of cygnets in winter, and then predict the change trend of the spatial and temporal distribution of cygnets in Chongming East Beach.The main migration routes of wintering cygnets in Chongming Dongtan were identified, and the complete annual life cycle trajectory was obtained, so as to understand the relationship between breeding sites, molting sites, resting sites and wintering sites of cygnets.Through the detection of infectious diseases carried by cygnets, monitoring the types of infectious diseases that may be carried by cygnets, providing a research demonstration for comprehensively understanding the status of large anatides and their habitats in Dongtan and guaranteeing the ecological security of Shanghai.Disclaimer: This article is reproduced for the purpose of conveying more information.If the source is wrong or violated your legitimate rights and interests, please contact the author with proof of ownership, we will promptly correct, delete, thank you.Email address: newmedia@xxcb.cn
