The Ark of Life / Escape pipeline for animals in fire

The Ark of Life

The Ark of Life is a pipe-like mountain fire shelter designed for areas with frequent mountain fires.While ecological restoration was carried out manually, the shelter was buried underground. There is a small amount of plant fiber and a certain amount of water and food stored in the cabin, which not only attracts animals, but also provides survival protection for small animals in case of mountain fire.
