106年水雉生態教育園區志工培訓開幕式合影。

高鐵水雉保育工作從民國88年依據高鐵環評承諾在台南官田地區營造15公頃棲地開始,棲地的工作係由臺南市政府、本局、行政院農業委員會林務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。由於復育成功,復育區於民國96年改名為『水雉生態教育園區』,並對外開放參觀。園區經營管理單位除負責水雉復育工作外,並對農友及民眾推廣環保及生態保育觀念,當時需要立即有大量的志工來支援相關活動推展、導覽解說、棲地整理及調查巡守等多項工作,所以從96年起園區就開始辦理志工培訓,並藉由培訓活動讓更多有興趣的民眾瞭解水雉保育的重要性,從基本認識到採取更積極的環境作為。因此,園區工作小組就把志工培訓列為每年園區工作計畫的重點工作之一,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營隊。
本年度也在4月8、9、15及16日進行4天的志工培訓課程,參加人員要完成4天的課程並通過考驗後才可獲得志工培訓證書,本次活動依工作小組分工,由社團法人台南市野鳥學會主辦,本局為協辦單位,參與開幕並擔任工作人員。本次培訓共有19名學員參加,來自各行各業的夥伴,很多是退休老師及學校學生,因為熱愛觀賞鳥類、環境保護及水雉保育,投入志工行列。
本局多年來積極參與水雉保育及環境教育的工作,也非常重視志工培訓工作,今年選派第六組陳宇俊科長代表本局與會,在開幕時特別感謝志工的參與及發心,並分享水雉園區與高鐵計畫的淵源,期使園區在志工的協助下,讓水雉成為官田地區的環境指標,也讓園區的成果成為台灣保育界的楷模,鼓勵民眾多多支持保育工作,創造友善的地球環境。

The HSR Pheasant-tailed Jacana Conservation Project was initiated according to the EIA of HSR in 1999, consisting 15 hectares of pheasant-tailed jacana restoration habitat in Guantian District, Tainan City. The work and duties in Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park is mainly implemented by a task force formed by members from Tainan City Government, BOHSR, the Forestry Bureau of COA, Executive Yuan and THSRC. Currently, the authorities have authorized Wild Bird Society of Tainan to be in charge of operation and management of the park. As a result of the success of the rehabilitation, the rehabilitation area was renamed as “Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park” in 2007 and was also opened to the public. In addition to jacana rehabilitation work, the park management units also promoted environmental protection and ecological conservation concepts to farmers and the public. At that time, there was a need for a large number of volunteers to support the activities related to the promotion, guided tours, habitat arranging, investigation and other work so from 2007 on, the park started volunteer training. Through training activities, the park tried to let more interested people understand the importance of jacana conservation and start from basic understanding to taking more positive environmental actions. Therefore, the staff in the park put the annual volunteer training as one of the focuses of the park. Each year, the first volunteer training camp would be implemented in April, the beginning of the jacana breeding season.
This year, the four-day volunteer training was held on April 8, 9, 15 and 16. The trainees have to complete all four days of training and pass an ultimate test in order to obtain the volunteer training certification. This year’s training was hosted by Wild Bird Society of Tainan with BOHSR as the cosponsoring unit providing event-opening and staff support. In the training, there were 19 participants from all walks of life, mostly retired teachers and students. Being a lover of the environment and jacana conservation, the participants devoted themselves into this field.
BOHSR has been actively involved in jacana conservation and environmental education for many years and attached great importance to volunteer training. The bureau representative― Chief Yu-Chun Chen gave a speech in the opening ceremony to express gratitude to participants of their participation, contribution and intentions toward the environment. He also shared the origin of the jacana park and the high-speed rail project, anticipating that the jacanas can become the environmental indicators of Guantian area with the help of volunteers. The park's achievements will also be as a model of Taiwan's conservation sector. The section chief finally encouraged people to support conservation work and create a friendly environment for the earth.
