Abstract:Prayer animal release has long been a religion custom and is practiced widely in China. Because of the lack of professional guidance and supervision, animal releases have caused a series of environmental accidents including pollutions and species invasions, and resulted in a large number of excess death of release animals, public security problem and illegal poaching increasing, and these had significant negative impacts on the production and living of local residents, as well as on the wildlife protection and management. At the same time, this also ran counter to the original meaning of animal release in Buddhist teachings. The new revision of the Law of the People's Republic of China on the Protection of Wildlife in 2016 introduced provisions of animal release, and provided clear and unequivocal legal basis for supervision and control to animal release, and met the actual need of current nature conservation in China. According to the requirement of new law, the management on animal releasing should be enhanced. In this article, we suggested to formulate the regulation of animal releasing based on the new law to improve its feasibility, appoint the specific management department, and build the technical standards and management process of animal release including the environment for animal releases, the number of prayer animals, the fitness and environmental impacts of prayer animals, the time and the place for releases, as well as the monitoring plan after animal releases. We hope these can provide technique and regulation supporting to ensure that animal releases are practiced in a scientific, well-organized and safe way. Simultaneously, based on the consideration that animal releasing was still a human disturbance to natural ecosystem, it should be banned and replaced by the program of field conservation to reach its religious goal consistently in the long term.
