So far, Aiyakang's bird photography has covered thousands of different birds. In order to take these photos, he looked for different kinds of birds around the world, and sometimes even waited for hours on dangerous cliffs, just to show everyone the most beautiful side of this small spiritual life in nature. Speaking of the original intention of doing so, Aiyakang said that taking photos of birds is not just a hobby. This behavior is also a kind of insight after working for many years: a true entrepreneur will ultimately have to give back Society, dedication society. Ai Yakang chose a path that others have not gone through, hoping in this way to awaken people's love for birds, and awareness of environmental protection and the construction of ecological civilization. In Aiyakang's own words, he has taken the public welfare of bird love and bird care as his mission. Ai Yakang hopes to publish a "Encyclopedia of Birds of the World" within ten years, collect all the birds in the world, let everyone experience the beauty of the environment and ecology through a picture, and leave precious spiritual wealth for future generations .
At the signing ceremony, Aiyakang tells a story emotionally for everyone: In a shooting, Aiyakang saw the big bird feeding the young birds that were not flying in the nest, and suddenly thought of a problem, these young birds stayed every day Feces are definitely produced in the nest, so how do they clean up the feces and keep the environment tidy? At that time, a young bird happened to have a bowel movement, and saw that the big bird did not hesitate and stay, and the young man's feces were swept away and cleaned up as soon as possible. This incident made Ai Yakang particularly emotional. He believes that birds still know to protect the environment of their homes and keep the living environment clean, let alone us humans?
At a deep level, Ai Yakang's bird-loving behavior is actually a love for the entire natural environment, a maintenance of the balance of the ecosystem, and a strong support for the construction of an ecological civilization. Birds still know to protect their home environment, let alone us humans? May each of us be inspired by it.
