Yangtze River Headwaters Volunteering Day 29 长江源志愿工作第29天

This is a series of journals recording my days in the Yangtze River Headwaters volunteering project. I will try to update every day but there might be delays in the days I work in the wild without the internet. I’m also trying to write bilingual if time allows. Like it?

这是我参与长江源志愿工作的一系列记录。我争取每日更新,但在野外工作没有网络的那些日子会有延迟。在时间允许的情况下,也会尽量使用中英双语。喜欢的话,关注我的Ins账号(@anar.chica.yichenguo)获取更新吧!

The work today is morning patrol and on duty for operational nuances. Free time was spent in the post office. The postmen come here every Wednesday so I hurried up to write some postcards. 

After a nap at noon, we figured that the cat Mo Jiecao is about to give birth. She was bleeding a little and kept mewing and walking among people. We were all panicked. Some asked their friends whose cats have given birth to kittens before, some asked vet what we should do. A bunch of people are following her to watch out in case she lay somewhere not safe outside. Eventually she smartly hid in a container where people don’t usually go inside. We brought her sleeping box and food bowls inside and then went back to our own duties not disturbing her any more. 

We took the opportunity that most of us were in the station to take group photos. The atmosphere of saying goodbye is stronger and stronger. However, no matter how frequently personnels are changing here, the station always stays. While I’m leaving, my dad joined the Green River WeChat group as one of the volunteers starting at 10th August. I’m curious how a retired ‘uncle’ would come along with a group mainly formed by youngsters. But I won’t extend my stay to wait for him since volunteering experience is usually better when one comes alone without acquaintance. I believe he would make good friends with the group because of his hidden funny personality.


今天的工作是一早巡站和副值班,空闲时间都在邮局帮忙。正好每周三邮递员从格尔木过来,便抓紧时间写了一些明信片。

中午一觉醒来发现漠节操似乎是要生了,屁股有点流血,在人群中喵个不停,走来走去。全站手忙脚乱,有人问自家猫生产过的朋友相关的经验,有人问兽医该怎么办,一群人跟在她身后看着,怕她生在外面不安全的地方。最终她很聪明地找了一个平时不进人的集装箱躲了起来,我们把她睡觉的窝和吃喝的盆拿进去,便不再打扰,继续各忙各的活了。

下午趁人多,大伙抓住机会拍了些合照。离别的氛围越来越浓了。然而铁打的保护站,流水的志愿者,在我即将离开之际,我爹作为八月十日开始的志愿者今天加入了绿色江河的微信大群。很好奇一个退休了的大叔会如何与一个年轻人为主的群体相处。但志愿活动一个人参加体验会更好,所以作为女儿的我也并不打算延期等待了。相信他隐形活宝的性格能够和大家打成一片。
