Searching For A Priceless Dream

文字-A A +A

With the firm belief that environmental conservation and life education are intimately related, Fu Yuan-Yang (傅元陽) and Ye Mei-Qing (葉美青), the two main people in charge at Hualien Habitat Conservation Society (花蓮縣棲地保育學會), decided to use butterflies as a fulcrum for the promotion of ecological conservation.

Finding a piece of land near Hualien’s Liyu Lake to act as a base for the park, the couple began growing myriad plants and raising butterflies. Taiwan has over 400 kinds of butterflies, 200 of which can be found in their eco park.

Originally a national Taekwando coach, Fu Yuan-Yang trained countless Olympic competitors including Chen Yi-An etc. However, he decided to relinquish this career and search for his dream in Hualien – helping people to focus more attention on environmental education.

Fu Yuan-Yang said that if everyone used a quantitative approach to evaluate what one can get from life, then who would care about the environment? In addition to Fu Yuan-Yang and Ye Mei-Qing, several local people are also involved in the eco park, all with their own rich and abundant life stories to share.

不為價值 追尋理想

花蓮縣棲地保育學會的兩位負責人傅元陽和葉美青,以蝴蝶為主來推動生態保育,他們認為環境教育和生命教育是息息相關的。於是他們在花蓮鯉魚潭的附近,找了一塊地開始做生態園區,裡頭種植各類植物,和培育蝴蝶。台灣共有400多種蝴蝶,而在他們的園區內就有200多種。

傅元陽原本是跆拳道國手教練,在他手下培育出陳怡安等奧運選手。不過他選擇放棄原有事業,在花蓮追尋理想,讓民眾重視環境教育。傅元陽表示,如果每個人都以量化的方式評估自己能獲得多少,那麼環境該怎麼跟人計較?在生態園區內付出的不只是他們兩人,還包括了好幾位在地的員工,他們自身的故事也都是豐富的生命教材。
