Muzha Cui Lake (木柵翠湖) is a rare city wetland ecosystem located within Mucha Park (木柵公園). Unfortunately, the release of invasive alien species into the pond earlier in the year has seriously endangered the habitat of indigenous species. In a bid to capture these invasive alien species and restore firefly habitat, Wenshan Community College has collaborated with Taipei City Government, raising 1600 soil bags made from recycled T-shirts and coffee bean sacks.

On July 12, over a hundred volunteers used the soil bags to build an earthen dike, providing a segregated shelter pond for the protection of indigenous species in Cui Lake. Following the dike’s completion, July 18 & 25 will be spent removing invasive alien species, and on August 10, bottom soil from the pond will be excavated and filled into bags. Sediment disturbance caused while removing the invasive alien species hiding in the soil will also help increase oxygen levels, aiding firefly habitat restoration.

找回萃湖美力 復育螢火蟲棲地

位於木柵公園內美麗的萃湖,是都市中難得的濕地生態池,但近年,因有人在湖中不當的放養外來物種,嚴重危及本土物種的生長環境。文山社區大學配合台北市政府為木柵公園的抓漏及螢火蟲復育工程,緊急募集了1600個以純棉T恤縫製的土包袋及裝咖啡豆的麻袋,於7月12日號召近百位志工,為萃湖的原生物種建造生態庇護池的土堤。在完成土堤後,將於7月18及25日以兩天的時間移除外來種,再於8月10日前持續挖填底泥土包袋,藉由底泥的擾動來增加含氧量,移除底泥中躲藏的外來種,而移動的部份底泥也將營造成為螢火蟲復育的棲地。
