Volunteers wanted for alligator search

VOLUNTEERS are wanted to search for endangered wild Chinese
alligators at Dongtan Wetland Park on Chongming Island in August and September to help collect data for scientific research.

The volunteers will row a boat in the evening and use a flashlight to find adult and baby alligators, whose eyes look red in a flashlight beam.

Volunteers also will have the rare opportunity to walk in the park in the evening to see wild birds returning to their nests and should get a good view of the stars. The park is closed in the evening.

Good rowers and photographers are preferred. The searches will be
held four times -- on August 9, August 24, September 7 and
September 14 -- from 2pm to 8:30pm. There is no charge.

Those who are interested can email or call 39367001.
