為推動保護水雉生態及友善耕作觀念的宣導工作,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105年10月10日國慶日當日假台南官田區水雉生態教育園區共同舉辦「105年生態季」開幕活動,本次主題為「友善耕種,鬥陣來支持」,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之意象。農友採用不使用農藥化肥的友善耕種方式,加上民眾持續購買綠色標章的農產品來支持,以達到保護環境的目的,是本次開幕活動的主軸。
本次開幕活動各相關單位都全力配合,本局由胡局長湘麟親自率隊參加,胡局長在開幕致詞時特別提到他與園區緣份很深,有兩重緣份,第一個緣份是推動高鐵計畫時,為搶救水雉,得到與台灣環境共存共榮的啟示。第二個是園區及慈心基金會共同推動有機無毒的耕種方式,讓更多人因為保護水雉,了解綠色標章及友善耕種的由來,更加重視環境保護的重要性,讓他感受很深。胡局長最後感謝園區志工及綠保農友的貢獻,並請大家要好好地和他們學習。
開幕活動當天雖然下雨,但擋不住參加民眾的熱情,參加的人數並沒有因此比往年減少,開幕式節目非常精采,荒野協會帶領小朋友演出的環境行動劇及剝菱角達人的競賽都非常吸睛,綠保農友的頒獎儀式最吸引媒體的拍攝及採訪,很多綠保農友都已經七八十歲高齡,仍堅持在友善耕作崗位,實在令人讚嘆。胡局長也代表大會頒發感謝狀給老農友瑞香伯,瑞香伯年紀很大,今年本來想放棄友善耕種方式,因為種有機菱角非常辛苦,體力吃不消,得到的利潤又微不足道,但在園區的鼓勵下,還是堅持下來,後來菱角也順利地被認購完畢,本局同仁在過程中也給了很大的支持,這次的開幕活動就是傳達這個理念,希望大家能一起來支持,把愛傳出去。

For the purpose of promoting jacana habitat preservation and green protection label, BOHSR, Forestry Bureau, Tainan City Government, Guantian District Office, THSRC and Tainan Wild Bird Society together conducted the "2016 Pheasant-tailed Jacana Ecological Festival". On Oct. 10, 2016, the day of our National Day, the opening ceremony was held at Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park. The theme of this year’s festival was "Together Support Friendly Farming", targeting to send the message of jacana preservation and the concept of protecting the wetland habitat and its wildlife. Farmers adopted friendly farming methods that do not use pesticides and chemical fertilizers. In addition, people continue to buy green-labeled agricultural products to support and achieve the purpose of protecting the environment is the main theme of the opening event.
In the opening ceremony, all relevant units were fully cooperative. BOHSR also attached great importance to the event in which Director-General Hsiang-Lin Hu personally led his unit to participate in the event. In the opening speech, Director-General Hu made a special mention of his deep relationship with the park. His first deep interaction with the Park was the enlightenment of coexistence with the Taiwan environment when saving the pheasants during promotion of the high-speed rail project. The second occasion that affected Director-General Hu was when the Park and Tse-Xin Organic Agriculture Foundation promoted organic non-toxic farming methods, more people grew understanding of the origin of the green label and friendly farming via the protection of pheasants. The people started to pay more attention to the importance of environmental protection which affected him profoundly. Lastly, Director-General Hu finally thanked the volunteers and the Green Farmers for their contributions and encouraged the audience to learn from them.
Although the day of the opening ceremony was rainy, it did not stop the enthusiasm of the participants. The number of participants was not lower than in previous years. There were many splendid and eye-catching programs in the opening ceremony including the children's environmental action drama directed by the Society of Wilderness and the Water Chestnut Peeling Competition. The Green Protection Label Farming Award Ceremony attracted the most media because many green farmers have reached seventy or eighty years old and still adhered to the friendly farming positions which is absolutely amazing. On behalf of the event, Director-General Hu issued a certificate of appraisal to an old farmer, Grandpa Jui-hsiang, who was once deciding to give up friendly farming this year because farming organic water chestnuts is very hard and requires too much physical strength; plus, the profits are negligible. However, under the Park's encouragement, Grandpa Jui-hsiang stuck to it and his water chestnuts were later on successfully sold out. Meanwhile, staff in BOHSR also provided great support to Grandpa Jui-hsiang. The entire opening event was about conveying this idea, we hope to gather support and spread love forward.
