Nature’s Best Pals

Cover Story:Nature’s Best Pals

Fifty years, it is enough for a person to experience through life’s ups and downs, to be on one's mettle and finally meet his destiny. For the national society, fifty years is enough to lay its groundwork for development, and then further look into the future trends. It has been over 45 years since Taiwan’s National Park Law was legislated in 1972. In addition, the implementation of the National Spatial Plan will soon be announced and a new wave of organizational reform will also take place in 2018. The National Parks Division will be upgraded to the National Parks Agency level, which is the perfect time for us to think about and agree upon the role of national parks in homeland security and organizational position. In the “National Parks for the Future - International Symposium of National Parks Development in Taiwan”, five experts and scholars including Carl Wang, Marcia L. Keener, Michael Philip Wong, Motoko Oyadomari, and Jay Lee, who currently all play a decisive role in international conservation and protected area management have gathered in Taiwan, and brought with them precious experiences of the United States, Canada and Japan to discuss further about the future direction of ecology, landscape and humanistic conservation through their international experience, and reexamine Taiwan's national parks and conservation contexts.
