「104年菱角鳥生態季」開幕活動 The Opening Ceremony of the “2015 Pheasant-tailed Jacana Ecological Festival”
珍古德博士簽名園區T恤(世界上僅有1件)公益拍賣。

為推動保護水雉生態及綠色保護標章觀念的宣導工作,由本局、農委會林務局、台南市政府、台南市官田區公所、台灣高速鐵路公司及台南市野鳥學會於104年9月27日中秋節當日上午9點30分假台南官田區水雉生態教育園區共同舉辦「104年菱角鳥生態季」開幕活動,本次的主題為「雉在生活,從菱開始」,希望透過此項活動,傳達保護水雉,及保護這片濕地與其他物種的觀念,園區這幾年已經打響名號,今年更走入社區,鼓勵農民支持有機,園區也用水雉的名號幫有機產品行銷,近期推出的菱香米和菱香凍都非常受歡迎,而且百分之十的收入都挹注給農民,今年因為颱風的關係,很多農戶年收入都只有幾萬元,靠天吃飯真是非常辛苦。
本次開幕活動,本局由徐榮崇組長率隊參加,徐組長在開幕致詞時特別提到水雉在高鐵計畫及台灣環境共存共榮的啟示,激發大家對有機無毒的環境更加重視及珍惜,也感謝園區工作人員、義工及農友的用心,讓水雉生態教育園區及官田更多農田成為水雉安全的家,也因此保護了其他的生物,更重要的是把有機無毒的好東西與大家分享,此成功的案例已納入本局環境教育予以推廣。
當天天氣涼爽宜人,但可惜這行之多年的活動可能因為登革熱的影響,參加的人比往年少了很多,開幕式節目非常精采,荒野協會帶領小朋友的環境行動劇、二溪國小的水雉畫作拍賣都非常吸睛,90歲阿嬤的剝菱仁也吸引媒體拍攝,但活動最高潮是高鐵公司公淑平小姐當拍賣官的珍古德博士簽名園區工作藍色T恤(世界上僅有1件)公益拍賣,在熱烈的競標下,竟然拍出三萬元高價,珍古德的魅力果然驚人,除此之外活動還包括生態闖關、賞鳥屋定點解說、水雉即時影像觀察、生態農業相關的綠市集、生態闖關摸獎等,整個活動在下午4時圓滿完成。

For the purpose of promoting jacana habitat preservation and green protection label, BOHSR, Forestry Bureau, Tainan City Government, Kuan-Tien District Office, THSRC and Tainan Wild Bird Society together conducted the "2015 Pheasant-tailed Jacana Ecological Festival". On Sep. 27, 2015 at 9:30am, coincidently on the day of Moon Festival, the opening ceremony was held at Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park. The theme of this year's festival was "A Jacana Life, A Fresh Start", targeting to send the message of jacana preservation and the concept of protecting the wetland habitat and its wildlife. In the past few years, the Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park has expanded its visibility and in 2015, started to work its way deeper into the local community to encourage organic farming. The Park also helped to advertise and sell local organic products and was especially successful with water chestnut rice and water chestnut jelly. In addition, 10% of the earnings of locally produced organic goods will be returned back to the farmers. Due to multiple serious typhoons that have happened this year, many farmers only earned a couple thousands a month. It is really exhausting to earn a living depending on the weather.
The BOHSR team was led by Division Director Jung-Chung Hsu. During his opening speech, he especially addressed the enlightenment of the HSR project operating in harmony with the jacana wildlife which should arouse the public's attention of creating an organic, non-toxic environment. He also expressed gratitude toward the staff, volunteers and participating farmers who all played their significant part to make the Park and Kuan-Tien District a safer habitat for the jacanas and other wildlife. The successful story has been included in BOHSR's environmental education material and will be promoted in future trainings.
The weather of the festival opening ceremony was pleasant but attracted less audience than usual due to the dengue fever situation. Nevertheless, the activities were extremely exciting which included the environmental theater starred The Society of Wilderness and children actors, the Jacana Art Piece Auction by Erh Shi Elementary School and a ninety-year-old lady peeling water chestnuts which attracted the media's attention. The absolute highlight of the ceremony was the auction of the blue working T-shirt signed by Dr. Jane Goodall (there is only one in the world) in which the auctioneer was Ms. Su-Ping Kung of THSRC. After an enthusiastic bidding process, the T-shirt was sold at 30 thousand NT dollars showing astonishing charm of Dr. Goodall. Other activities included ecological games, narrative at the bird-watching house, jacana real-time observation, green market, lucky draws, etc. and the ceremony came to a successful end at 4pm.
