Protecting habitats to fight the disappearance of Taiwan's waterbirds

文字-A A +A

Taiwan is rich in bird diversity. Located in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, hundreds of migratory birds come to rest, replenish energy, spend the winter or reproduce each year. Taiwan New Year Bird Count was formed by the Endemic Species Research Institute and Taiwan Wild Bird Federation. After six years of joint monitoring of waterbirds, it was found that twelve waterbirds have decreased significantly, while the situation on the Yilan Plain and Changhua coastal area is even more severe.

 

Through education and habitat protection activities, Micang Elementary School in Bali District, New Taipei City has cooperated with The Society of Wilderness to erect a protective fence on the beach at the mouth of the Tamsui River, thereby creating a seasonal waterfowl sanctuary. It reminds the public that vehicles should not be driven onto the beach during the breeding period to avoid accidentally running over young birds or bird eggs. Hopefully, such measures can help protect the next generation of waterbirds and maintain a sound habitat ecology.

全台水鳥消失中 保護棲息地生態

臺灣擁有豐富的鳥類多樣性,座落在東亞澳遷徙線的中間,每年都有數百種候鳥來休息補充能量、度冬或繁殖。由行政院農委會特有生物研究保育中心及國內野鳥協會組成「台灣新年數鳥嘉年華」,以六年時間共同監測水鳥,發現有十二種水鳥的數量明顯減少,而蘭陽平原和彰化沿海地區的狀況最為嚴重。

透過教育和守護棲地的活動,新北市八里區米倉國小與荒野保護協會合作,於淡水河河口沙灘上豎立一道護生圍籬,營造季節性水鳥保護區。並提醒民眾不應於繁殖期間將車輛駛入沙灘,以免不慎輾壓幼鳥或鳥蛋,共同保育水鳥的下一代,維持良好的棲地生態。
