Taijiang National Park Promotes Eco-Friendly Habitat Creation Awarded the Wetland of Importance Label Certificate by the Ministry of the Interior

The Taijiang region has a long history of aquaculture. In particular, the traditional shallow water breeding method for milkfish, which regularly leaves the spawning beds fallow in winter, has recently been proven to be deeply interconnected with the biodiversity of migratory birds in Taijiang. It is also one of the reasons why Taijiang has become the largest wintering habitat of the black-faced spoonbill—a migratory species of international concern— for hundreds of years.

In order to preserve the traditional local culture of harmony between man and nature, the focus has also turned to the relationship between the private fish farms in the surrounding area and migratory birds on a winter sojourn. A conservation strategy based on the concept of "creating an eco-friendly habitat" has been planned in the hopes of creating a comprehensive habitat for migratory birds on a winter sojourn in the greater Taijiang area. This conservation strategy, which is in line with the concept of "wise use of wetlands", gained the support of all experts and scholars at the Wetland of Importance Label Review Meeting held by the Ministry of the Interior on July 10, and was awarded the Wetland of Importance Label certificate by the Ministry of the Interior on August 10.
