104年水雉生態教育園區志工培訓結業式合影。

台南水雉生態教育園區係由行政院農業委員會林務局、臺南市政府、本局及台灣高速鐵路股份有限公司成立工作小組來共同執行,目前委由社團法人台南市野鳥學會經營管理,目前設有5專責人員,但因園區工作瑣碎繁重,人力經常嚴重不足,自民國88年棲地營造時起,即經常發動志工來協助園區各項工作的推動,民國96年起園區對民眾開放參觀及民國100年開始推動環境教育訓練後,更需要志工在協助活動、導覽解說、棲地整理及緊急搶救等多項工作的支援,並透由志工活動讓更多民眾瞭解水雉保育的重要性,藉由認識,進而採取積極的環境行動,從導覽解說、多元化的環境教育活動,了解人類的使命,成就「復育水雉棲地」、「保育水雉族群」、「推展環境教育」的優質戶外場域,所以民國100年起志工培訓就列為每年園區工作計畫的重點工作,每年在水雉繁殖季開始時的4月間辦理一梯次的志工培訓。
本年度也在民國104年4月11、12、17及18日進行4天的培訓課程,特別邀請水雉生態紀錄片「坔地-活命生湠」導演邱彩綢小姐分享因被一群為了水雉無私奉獻的志工所感動,而投入紀錄片拍攝的心路歷程,過程中的點點滴滴化做影像,希望更多人共同見證美麗水雉在官田的每一步腳印。另外也邀請真理大學生態觀光經營學系許毅璿教授以及荒野保護協會高雄分會解說推廣組邱韻璇組長分享如何精采及讓人印象深刻的講授環境教育及導覽解說。最後一天是志工培訓最精采的課程,每個培訓人員不但要通過筆試而且要親自上陣在審查委員前導覽解說,通過考驗後才可獲得志工培訓證書。
本次培訓共有25名學員參加,經過4天的課程的培訓及考驗,選出14位來自各行各業的夥伴,年紀最小的是11歲的大港國小五年級游嵐琇同學,她今年和媽媽追隨爸爸(102年志工)的腳步一起來護持水雉園地,這群志工不為別的,只是希望水雉和其它生物能夠在一片更友善的土地上繼續「活命生湠」(生存、繁衍)。
本局除積極參與水雉保育及環境教育的工作外,也連續數年派員參與志工培訓的課程,在培訓最後一天協助園區工作小組勉勵志工並頒發培訓證書,今年本局也由第六組陳宇俊科長代表與會,陳科長在結訓時表示高鐵局代表工作小組感謝學員的參與,也非常感動各位學員對環境的貢獻及發心,並以「復育」、「保育」、「教育」讓水雉生態教育園區得以持續傳遞「生活」、「生產」與「生態」的共存共榮觀點勉勵各學員的善行,整個活動在4月18日下午5時30分圓滿閉幕。

The work and duties in Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park is mainly implemented by a task force formed by members from the Forestry Bureau, Tainan City Government, BOHSR and THSRC. Currently, the authorities have authorized Wild Bird Society of Tainan to be in charge of operation and management of the Park. There are only 5 specialized staffs responsible for Park duties which resulted in constant lack of manpower. Since the initiation of habitat creation in 1999, volunteer recruitment has been conducted periodically to assist in the environmental work. After official opening of the park in 2007 and commencement of environmental education trainings in 2011, more and more volunteers are needed to assist in promoting activities, tour guidance, habitat restoration and emergency rescues. By recruiting volunteers, the staff can carry out the importance of jacana preservation through volunteer activities. Then, the staff and volunteers can pass on these concepts through tours and education trainings to the public ultimately creating an outdoor park that achieves "restoration of jacana habitat", "preservation of peasant-tailed jacana population’ and "promotion of environmental education". To achieve this target, the park has listed volunteer trainings as a highlight in its annual plans since 2011 and the first session of volunteer training each year has been set in April during the initiation of peasant-tailed jacana's breading season.
In 2015, the four-day volunteer training was held on April 11, 12, 17 and 18. In the training Ms. Tsai-Chou Chiu, Director of the documentary, "Roosting and Breeding of the Pheasant-tailed Jacanas", was invited to share how she was touched by a group of selfless volunteers immersed in jacana restoration that brought her on the road of filming this documentary. Her goal was to transform the memorable moments into film for more people to witness the beautiful jacanas in Guantien, Tainan. On the other hand, Professor Yi-Jui Hsu from Department of Ecology and Tourism Management, Aletheia University and Kaohsiung Branch Division Director, Ms. Yun-Hsuan Chiu, from The Society of Wilderness both presented splendid lectures sharing their experiences in environmental protection. On the last and most exciting day of the training, each trainee has to first pass the written examination then present as a docent in front of evaluation members to be rewarded with the Certificate of Achievement.
In this year's training, there were 25 trainees in the four-day training and 14 trainees were elected to be future volunteers of the Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park. Among the 14 elected volunteers, the youngest was Lan-Hsiu Yu, a 11 year-old student currently studying in Dagang Elementary School, who followed her parents' steps of becoming a guardian of the jacana park. All the volunteers in the park have devoted themselves to the restoration work just to see that the animals can roost and breed in a more eco-friendly habitat.
Over the years, BOHSR have actively participated in jacana preservation and environmental educations. Moreover, BOHSR has sent representatives each year to help with the volunteer training. This year, Section Chief of the Sixth Division, Mr. Yu-Chun Chen, represented BOHSR to express gratitude to participants and encouraged all to continue with "restoration", "preservation" and "education" for the park to thrive. The training came to a successful end at 5:30pm on April 18th.
