What people are saying:

I visited the Hummingbird Nature Reserve in Yerette and learned a lot about hummingbirds. I hope to raise everyone’s awareness of hummingbird protection through this trip! [About hummingbirds] Hummingbirds are small in size and mostly bright in color. Their most special feature is that they can hover in the air by quickly flapping their wings, and fly fast, reaching 90-100 kilometers per hour. Most of today's hummingbirds live in tropical and subtropical areas between 10°N latitude and 25°S latitude. 【Survival status of hummingbirds】Because the feathers of hummingbirds are brightly colored, in the 19th century European and American women often used hummingbird feathers to make hats, and merchants bought hummingbird skins, posing a great threat to the survival of hummingbirds. Hummingbirds have higher requirements for habitats. Now, with the deforestation, the development of farming, and the use of pesticides, the habitats that many hummingbirds depend on have been destroyed, bringing the danger of extinction to some hummingbird species. Today, all species of the Hummingbird family are included in the "World Conservation Union Red List of Endangered Species" and are not allowed to be traded. [How to protect hummingbirds] Minimize the use of pesticides or use organic pesticides, and absolutely not use pesticides around the habitat of hummingbirds. Donations can be made to relevant hummingbird protection organizations to support the development of hummingbird habitat protection. Hummingbirds sometimes fly into enclosed environments by mistake. If the hummingbird is trapped, we can grab it and release it outside. When it is caught in the hand, it will remain quiet until it is released.
