Changjiang Weekly - - EVENTS -

A vol­un­teer re­cruit­ment for the sci­en­tific ex­pe­di­tion to Chishui Danxia land­form of­fi­cially started on June 5.

Danxia is a unique type of land­scapes formed from red sand­stone and char­ac­terised by steep cliffs. The Chishui Danxia Land­form Scenic Area, lo­cated in Chishui, Guizhou, cov­ers an area of more than 1,200 square kilo­me­ters. It is re­garded as the largest and most splen­did and beau­ti­ful Danxia land­form.

This sci­en­tific ex­pe­di­tion will be held from July 5 to July 8, dur­ing which vol­un­teers will fol­low ex­perts and pro­fes­sors to con­duct field stud­ies in this ge­o­graphic park and dis­cuss ge­ol­ogy and botany.

Par­tic­i­pants of the pro­gram should be stu­dents or pro­fes­sion­als in the field of ge­ol­ogy, botany, hu­man­ity and his­tory, or peo­ple who ex­cel in pho­tog­ra­phy and photo edit­ing.

After the ex­pe­di­tion, they should sum­ma­rize and share what they have ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing the trip through mul­ti­me­dia means like text, au­dio, or video for more peo­ple to know about the nat­u­ral beauty of Chishui Danxia.

This sci­en­tific ex­pe­di­tion is free and will pro­vide vol­un­teers food and ac­com­mo­da­tion, tick­ets, trans­porta­tion fees in the scenic area, and in­sur­ance. There will be fol­low-up in­ter­views after com­ple­tion of the ini­tial reg­is­tra­tion.
