Marine National Park Headquarters Urges Protection of the South Penghu Coral Reefs

The beautiful coral reefs and sights of the South Penghu Marine National Park have attracted public attention and gradually increased popularity of recreational water activities in the park. In order to protect the coral reef ecosystem and prevent boats from anchoring and destroying the coral reefs, the Marine National Park Headquarters and related units have set up 15 mooring buoys in the recreational activity hotspots, so that water recreation operators can moor their boats as needed. Operators violating the regulations will be fined NT$3,000 according to the South Penghu Marine National Park Prohibitions, and will be required to make compensation for the actual damages according to Article 27 of the National Park Law.

If members of the public lodge complaints about violations by boat operators with relation to recreational water activities, the Marine National Park Headquarters has instructed the Visitor Service Stations to strengthen monitoring and the Seventh Special Police Corps will also be requested to assist with investigation. Violators will be strictly penalized accordingly based on the results of the investigation. If members of the public come across such non-compliance situations, please feel free to immediately contact the Visitor Service Stations (Dongji: 06-9991109, Dongyuping 06-9991523) to report, and the Marine National Park Headquarters will immediately launch an investigation.
