Conservationists seek more volunteers to join the front line against poaching to protect birds in China.
Conservationists say poaching is driving some bird species to the brink of extinction in China, a major stopover for tens of millions of birds migrating between the Arctic and places like Australia.
"I found a lot of traps set up for birds, especially during the migration seasons in the spring and autumn. Birds can't really see them though, so a lot of them are caught. I feel sorry for them so I try to remove the nets and ask local law enforcement for help," says anti-poacher Gu Xuan.
Chinese activists estimate that 7-10 million wild birds are trapped in the country each year, based on extrapolated numbers from the reports of thousands of activists.
