Global Black-Faced Spoonbill Population Hits a New High Taijiang National Park’s Conservation Efforts are Successful

The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society (HKBWS) officially announced that the global population of black-faced spoonbills has reached 5,222 in 2021, an increase of 358 birds compared to last year’s census of 4,864 birds. There are 3,132 black-faced spoonbills in Taiwan, accounting for 60% of the global population and an increase of 347 spoonbills compared to the same period last year. The number of black-faced spoonbills in Yunlin/Chiayi was 539 (113 less than the same period last year), 2,114 in Tainan (275 more than the same period last year), and 408 in the Jiading and Yongan wetlands (223 more than the same period last year). The number of black-faced spoonbills in the periphery of Taijiang National Park increased the most, showing that the habitat-friendly efforts that the Taijiang National Park Headquarters has been promoting in recent years are gradually yielding tangible results.
