14 Discussion As a student of Grade 8, how can you help Zhalong and the wildlife there?

15 A true but sad story Once there was a kind-hearted girl. When she was young ,she kept a red-crown crane. After she left college, she returned to the place where the red -crown crane lived .One day ,she fell into the wetland and died while she was trying to save the wounded red -crown crane.

16 We should learn from her!
Do you know the story of Xu Xiujuan, who lost her life in saving red-crowned cranes? We should learn from her!

17 1987年9月15日中午,丹顶鹤牧仁、黎明在笼子里鸣叫不已,徐秀娟以为它们想出来游玩和戏水,就进去把它们抱出来放进水塘里。不想牧仁、黎明玩兴大发,先后挣脱绳子飞走了。到了晚上,牧仁被找回来了,黎明还是不见踪影。夜深了,领导让大家回去休息,明天再找。可是徐秀娟放心不下,等大家走了,她一个人摸黑钻进密密的芦苇中,不断呼唤着黎明,可是没找到。这天晚饭她也吃不下,第二天一大早没顾上吃饭就又去找。中午回来喝了半碗稀饭,牵挂着黎明又出了门。到了复堆河,小王、小殷游过了河,徐秀娟快游到江心时,忽然喊了一声“我不行了”,停住了身。对岸的小王、小殷见她脸色苍白,大声喊她退回岸上,见她上岸后,两人才回身继续寻找。徐秀娟回到鹤场心急火燎呆不住,又推了一辆自行车,沿河堤绕道北行,想和小王、小殷会合,把黎明尽快找回。不知是由于顶风人累踏不动,还是骑车跌了跤(后来发现车子铃铛掉下来了),她又推车来到刚才下水的地方,把车子放倒,连鞋子都没来得及脱又下了水…… 人民的好女儿徐秀娟就这样深深沉入复堆河底,再也回不到她亲爱的鹤儿们身边了…… 时间过去了4个小时,黎明被找回来了,欢天喜地中的人们到处找徐秀娟,不见;呼唤娟子,不应,焦急的人群又冲向了原野……夜沉沉,路漫漫,遍野是人群,到处唤秀娟。当强烈的汽车灯直照水面,人们把娟子从水底托起时,抢救的人群开始是惊慌忙乱,后来想到时间过去太久,已经没有希望了,一片呼唤娟子的哭声,这才忽地震动苍穹掠过草滩。
