The Cape of Good Hope (好望角沿海) in Houlong Township, Miaoli County not only boasts outstanding vistas of the ocean and mountains, but is also the site of ancient fossils. The area, which is rich in natural resources, also has a number of other alluring qualities; it is the only conservation area in Taiwan for Venerupis philippinarum (海瓜子), an edible species of saltwater clam; remnants of an early stone tidal weir can be seen; and on the golden beaches early trawling methods are used.

However, due to human development activity, the local environment is continually under the threat of damage. Faced with their beaches littered with trash and driftwood, community residents decided to launch ‘Cape of Good Hope Beach Cleaning Activity’ to coincide with International Coastal Cleanup Day; the event saw the participation of children from Zhonghe and Qixin Elementary Schools. The community hopes that the activity will help develop a sense of self-guardianship in local people, providing the ongoing protection this wonderful coastal environment deserves.

後龍好望角四百人頂烈日淨灘

苗栗縣後龍鎮好望角沿海,不僅有美麗的山海景緻,更有萬年貝化石塚、全國唯一的海瓜子保育區、早年漁民捕魚的石滬遺跡、牽罟的黃金沙岸,自然資源相當豐富。但由於人類的開發行為,當地環境不斷遭受破壞威脅,海岸也隨處可見垃圾、漂流木,為此,在地民眾配合國際淨灘日,發起「好望角淨灘活動」,包括苗栗縣中和國小、啟新國小等學童都參加淨灘活動,希望藉此拋磚引玉,邀請民眾共同守護沿岸環境。
