China News Service, Xining, March 27 (Reporter Li Jiangning) "The ecological resources of Qinghai Lake and its surrounding areas are very rich, and the resource endowment is very good. Whether it is natural education, research activities, or ecological tourism, Qinghai Lake has unique advantages. It needs to be developed urgently." Hou Guangliang, a professor at the School of Geographical Sciences of Qinghai Normal University, told a reporter from Chinanews.com on the 27th.
A few days ago, the Qinghai Environmental Education Association, together with the Qinghai Lake Scenic Area Protection and Utilization Administration, the Qinghai Lake Nature Reserve Administration and other units jointly launched a nature education experience activity themed on the work experience of Przewalski's gazelle rangers. In the future, Qinghai Province will lay a foundation for students and the public to carry out natural education in and outside the province, and explore a new route that integrates natural education and ecological experience with Qinghai Lake as the core.
With the development of economy and society and the improvement of transportation and facilities, parents and children have higher and higher requirements for education. Natural education and ecological research have emerged as the times require, which is also a supplement to classroom knowledge.
"Human beings are part of nature and the earth system, and cities are only part of our living system. If students are allowed to experience the original natural state of the earth, they can not only experience the natural life in the wild, but also help their studies. In the wild, Students will have more experience in Chinese, poetry, aesthetics, geography, history, and even physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines." Hou Guangliang said.
"As a future national park, Qinghai Lake has another function besides protection, such as conducting scientific research and conducting appropriate educational experiences, the name can be different, and the biodiversity and ecological resources of the national park can be utilized. to develop." Hou Guangliang believes that Qinghai Lake is the "best choice" for natural education in and outside Qinghai Province.
Qinghai Lake Erlangjian Scenic Spot is only about 100 kilometers away from Xining, the largest city on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, with convenient transportation.
At the same time, the infrastructure around Qinghai Lake is relatively complete, which provides strong support for the development of eco-tourism.
Hou Guangliang said that domestic research and ecotourism are still in their infancy, and there is no mature model yet.
In the future, we must continue to explore, form a joint force of the whole people, and combine people from different classes and different professions to build together.
"From this point of view, it's not enough to rely on travel agencies alone, it's not possible to rely only on nature conservation units, it's not enough to rely only on teachers, and it's not enough to rely on students alone. It is more complex, more comprehensive, and more sophisticated than the previous traditional tourism industry. , demand more."
Participation in nature education and ecological experience is multi-faceted, including experiencers, lecturer teams, organizers, managers, etc. For this reason, Hou Guangliang suggested that local residents be involved and train them to become guides.
"The guides can be composed of herdsmen, caregivers, volunteers, etc. with certain relevant knowledge or experience in the local area. They are familiar with the local conditions and can also do necessary work in the logistics support of the training base. They are the nature education and ecological experience team.
