By May 20, the Qinghai Lake scenic area will carry out comprehensive remote video monitoring on the breeding places where migrant birds congregate in the summer.

This will greatly reduce human disturbance and influence on the birds' lives.

The Qinghai Lake digitalized monitoring system for scientific research and protection works was jointly developed by the Qinghai Lake Protection Utilization Administration Bureau and the Computer Network Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and is now actively pushing forward.

The 25 electronic eye-enabled monitoring sites planned for setup are scheduled to be completely installed and put into operation by May 20.

The electronic eyes cover a radius of between 30 and 60 kilometers. Through regular 24-hour monitoring of electronic and microwave transmission, they will send real-time footage of the wild birds' lives on Qinghai Lake back to the scenic spot's monitoring center, CAS' information platform and the China Digital Science and Technology Museum's public information website.

Birds to be monitored include the Bar-headed Goose, the Brown-headed Gull, cormorants and the Great Black-headed Gull.
