Up to now, most of the wetlands and wetlands in the core area of the bird reserve have more than 80,000 mu of wetlands, and most of them have completed water replenishment, and only a few areas have not yet completed water replenishment. “Water replenishment is a dynamic process, and it is now the breeding period of the shorebirds in the reserve. They usually spawn and hatch in some safe low water areas, so they cannot suddenly raise the water level significantly to avoid interruption the reproduction of the shorebirds. ” The relevant person in charge of the protected area explained that the water replenishment and ecological stocking of the protected area will be gradually implemented in accordance with the ecological conservation plan. The ecological stocking activities of the entire protected area will continue until the end of August this year.
