"I am worried that the roots here are not enough for the cranes," Zhou said. "We don't have enough money to rent more wetland to plant lotus."

Zhou used to be a reporter at Jiangxi Television and an amateur bird photographer. Since last year, however, she has devoted herself to protecting the wetlands on Wuxing Farm, which is in a northeast suburb of Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province, on the river-laced south shore of Poyang.
