Qinling Crested Ibis Rejuvenation and Habitat Conservation Project Profile

From 7 to 7000, from "extinction" to "rebirth," Shaanxi discovered the only 7 crested ibis in the world in 1981, and now the global population has reached more than 7000. It has created a miracle and is known as the "World Rescue".

Qinling is the most important biological gene bank and natural resource treasure house in China, as the mountain range dividing the north and south of China's geography. Shanxi Yangxian County is the "hometown" of the crested ibis. It is currently the world’s largest breeding base and ideal home for the crested ibis.Based on the uniqueness of the ecology and protection of the crested ibis, we will walk into the Qinling Mountains. Through learning, observation, experimentation and summary, we will jointly discuss the importance of biodiversity and the balance between the protection of endangered animals and economic development.

"Volunteering + Research", exclusively designed by ASDAN China, is an academic growth model that combines research-oriented learning and voluntary service. We refer to the authoritative theory of education, admission requirements of universities, 10 years of project experience, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to design our programs. ASDAN "Volunteering + Research" Programs cover four categories: Teach for Rural Areas, Community Support, Wildlife & Environment Conservation, and Cultural Heritage Conservation. Volunteers will experience rich and unique service scenarios and learn from different topics of research workshops concerning real social problems. We aim to guide volunteers to discover problems, propose solutions and report to the public, improve volunteers' research learning ability, meet the requirements of volunteers' personal growth and further education, and enhance their sense of social responsibility.

When it comes to voluntary services, admission officers of universities think highly of sincerely caring about society and comprehensive qualities and skills, such as proposers of innovative solutions, leaders of public welfare projects, and the continuity and depth of voluntary services. 62.1% of colleges would like to see applicants show a record report reflecting the whole process of volunteering.
