Tenderness of the Toughest towards Nature
Over the past 30 years, the National Parks of Taiwan in the face of evolving social culture at home and abroad and changes in the natural environment, we have continued to adjust our footwork and management strategies to maintain the important core of homeland conservation. Looking back on the initial stage of development of Taiwan’s national parks, we can see that it was closely related to the blueprint for national parks during the Japanese occupation period. Japan’s management of national parks also serves as a reference for East Asian countries. South Korea,also located in the Northeast Asia region, designated their first national park in 1967, which has now accumulated more than half a century of achievements.

These two neighboring countries that Taiwan knows well are already on the path of operating and managing national parks. Because of the similarities and differences in sociocultural characteristics, their experiences may enable us to gain much inspiration.
