动植物是人类的好朋友,人们是这样看待它们吗


When you look at animals, what do you see? Yang Qingyue, in Junior 1 in Hefei, Anhui Province, sees good friends.

Not everyone thinks this way.

Yang once looked up the word "xiong" (bear) in "The Contemporary Chinese Dictionary", 1983 edition, while he was studying animal protection (保护).

"To my surprise," Yang said, "it said the paw (掌) of a bear was a delicious food."

He went on to look up "hu" (tiger) and "lang" (wolf) in the dictionary, and the results were similar. Yang was not happy.

"These are our dear friends," he said. "How can we think only of eating them or making medicine from them?"

So Yang wrote to the editors of the dictionary and told them they should make some changes.

"I think it's better to tell us if an animal is a rare species (物种) and how many of them are left," his letter said.

Remember to protect

Yang isn't the only student who has seen these dangerous ideas.

At Beijing Botanical Garden (北京植物园) on Sunday, Junior 1 students Peng Yiting and Zhao Weike from Beijing's No 80 Middle School found many signs telling how plants can be used.

One sign read: "The juice of the plant can be made into medicine and is good for the skin."

"The signs should also tell us to remember to protect wildlife while using it," Peng said.

Zhao said many people need to change their ideas about wildlife.

"Think what we can do to protect it, not just what we can get from it," he said.

Have you seen problems like these in your city's zoo or gardens? Then write to the government and ask them to help people change their minds.
