In general, people wish "to help" homeless dogs and cats - animals that have become numerous throughout the planet due to people themselves. But at present not pets but wild animals need our attention in the first place. They have been deprived of their natural habitat, they are poisoned and killed, their environment is peing polluted - these are just some of the factors that put many wild animals into "threatened" and "protection-needed" position.

Winter has been quite long this year. The birds who have come for spring were suddenly met by frost and snow. A group of Young Biologists of Kharkov Zoo (Xenia Birkel, Svetlana Belyayeva, Yelena Rodenko, Olivia Al-Moudi, Alexey Parfilov) together with their teacher A.S. Gukasova went to "Slobozhansky" National Nature Reserve in order to help white storks and grey herons. The birds had flown to fishing ponds situated in flood plain of Merla river in the suburbs of Krasnokutsk. About 20 storks and 10 herons have been searching for fish. But the river was covered with ice and birds had no food, that's why young biologists have brought about 5 kilos of frozen fish which they scattered on the river bank. Birds appeared not too timid and let people come quite near them.

Spring is a wonderful time. We always associate it with birds migration. In the beginning of March in the suburbs of the city one could meet larks, thrushes and starlings. Notwithstanding the late snowfalls many people have seen big flocks of migrating geese and swans. Storks and herons have flown to the ponds. Frost has deprived them of food. Volunteers, Young Biologists among them, have arrived for help. They fed fish to hungry birds.

This event is organized to unite all people on our planet to protect the environment. It was in the XXth century that Earth Protection Day was first celebrated. It was in that time that people saw the high level of science development could threaten the human existence in the forthcoming centuries. Human population can really be destroyed due not to global war but to pollution of environment and exhaustion of natural resources. With such a prospective in mind, one wishes to think about this problem properly. People have always been thinking that the Earth is perennial and human population will live on it forever. In reality, the main threat to life is in human population itself.
