2016 Jonkea Raptors Festival—Flying Feather Gala
After the events held at Eluanbi Lighthouse and Gangkou Bridge in Manzhou Township on October 8, the “2016 Jonkea Raptors Festival—Flying Feather Gala” continued various wonderful performances on October 9 at the main venue in Lide. Apart from the ecological film show, environmental education session, and cultural and creative marketplace, the organizer invited local communities and art performing groups to give concerts to disseminate ecological conservation. In support of the “Light Up Taiwan: Slow Tip Tour” activity, while citizens appreciated the transit of grey-faced buzzards (Butastur indicus) (also called the national day bird in Taiwan) on Hengchun Peninsula, they could collect the four-tip stamp with their Light Up Taiwan Passport to complete a rich, in-depth, and fruitful trip!To continue the mission of raptor ecology conservation, Kenting National Park has installed the GPS bird tracker on six Chinese sparrow hawks (Accipiter soloensis) to trace their migration route. To interact with the public, park headquarters has launched an on-line poll on the park website for citizens to guess which one of these six tracked Chinese sparrow hawks would arrived in Taiwan first.
