Contextualize the landscape and the biodiversity of Wolong Lake in a dynamic way
Wolong Lake is part of the migration route and an important resting place for migratory birds between East Asia and Australia. It is also the place where the biodiversity is abundant. The presentation of 9 world-class endangered ornithological species living there, namely Baer's pochard (Aythya baeri), common pochard (Aythya ferina), Siberian crane (Leucogeranus leucogeranus), Oriental stork (Ciconia boyciana), hooded crane (Grus monacha), red-crowned crane (Grus japonensis), white-naped crane (Grus vipio), lesser white-fronted goose (Anser erythropus), and swan goose (Anser cygnoides), is regarded as an important part of the exhibition. Different kinds of media methods, such as models, film是and images, are used in order to change the passive visit for the active participation.
Moreover, what is emphasized in the exhibition is the ecological habitat of Wolong Lake and the richness of its plant resources, especially sensitive plants, such as hardy lotus which live only in the north and bulrush (Scirpus) which is very important to endangered birds. These kinds of information are linked in the form of food chain so that the visitors can figure out the connections among them.
A huge model of Wolong Lake and a projection of all kinds of explanatory maps and the satellite map of the lake are used in order to enrich significantly what normal models on the sand table can present and to display vividly the evolution of Wolong Lake.
The whole design concepts, with the purpose to maximize the mobilization of visitors on senses of sight, hearing, and touch, to convey the importance and the diversity of wetlands, and to remind viewers to protect the environment.
