Hi Isaac - thank you for your informative articles. I would like to get in touch - I am hoping to teach my students about climate change and possible need for adaptation for birds in Shanghai's wildlife and they would be fascinated by a photographer and an expert. If you read this and you would be interested, please email me at Robert.firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be reading your articles as they are great for learning about the local environment. Thanks.
