Welcome to the Spring 2008 edition of the National Park.
This time, we will not just take you into the beautiful mountains in Taiwan’s national parks but we are also in charge of the editing of the National Park Quarterly. Being outdoor enthusiasts, our editors treat this professional magazine dedicated to national parks quite seriously, and a lot of effort has been taken in order to ensure our magazine possesses the needed depth and coverage.

The new team continues the Magazine’s excellent quality and also introduces new elements. This is the first time the Magazine works with media such as Sanlih TV’s “Full Record of Taiwan” for having exciting coverage. In this issue, we discuss and even partake in Kenting National Park’s removal of Leucaena leucocephala. The cover stories are based on the four seasons and in the March issue, we show you the beautiful cherry blossoms in the national parks and the stories behind them, the winter journey of Euploea sylvestor, thoughts on wetlands and conservation of Hydrophasianus chirurgus by Director-general Chin-rong Lin of CPA, Professor Yao-song Lin discussing how Taiwan improves its ecosystem, and photos of steep cliffs by senior photographer Li-yong Lyu. Don’t miss this exciting issue!
