A campus wetland, a city bird sanctuary

World Wetlands Day is observed on February 2 to promote public understanding about wetland protection. Today, we turn to a small lake area nestled on the campus of Hainan University in southern China to understand the critical role wetlands play in supporting the diversity of life. Watch the video to see how the variety of birds that live in the lake region keep this human settlement vibrant.
