The Bird Expert Group of CBCGDF: We Must be Cautious on Supplementary Feeding of Wild Animals in Winter |Science and Technology Ethics Research 48

The Winter is coming. Many wild animals are likely to face food shortages, especially the wild migratory birds.

The bird expert group of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation(CBCGDF) believes that it is not appropriate to easily feed wild birds, but it does not mean that we object to all supplementary feeding of wild birds. We should adopt scientific methods to supplementary feeding; we should avoid random supplementary feeding, or even long-term feeding of wild birds.

The expert group believes that the behavior of supplementary feeding of wild birds should fully consider the changes in the habitat or wintering habitat of specific species, carry out scientific planning in a planned way, and make timely adjustments based on objective conditions. In particular, it is necessary to pay attention to the climate change that occurs in a special time period, such as the range and trend of temperature change, and pay attention to the core factors closely related to the concerned species . Because changes in these core factors are often the most important driving force leading to changes in the behavior of the concerned species.
