「跟生物們約定,許牠們一個安全的家。」,是本次本局、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106年9月23日上午9點30分假水雉生態教育園區共同舉辦的「106年菱角鳥生態季」主題,並以「雉」在里山,恢復農田濕地生態服務為活動目標。位於台灣台南官田區的水雉生態教育園區,為了讓水雉能夠自由自在的生活、覓食、繁殖,努力推動在地友善耕種,實踐讓人與環境和諧共存的里山精神。從菱角田開始打造健康與安全的生活棲地,恢復農田濕地生態服務,藉以維繫人與生物共同的命脈。
本次開幕活動各相關單位都全力配合,本局也非常關注,由饒主任秘書國政率隊參加,饒主秘在開幕致詞時提到他來到園區多次的感受,尤其在推動高鐵計畫時,為了搶救水雉,認識了環境保護的必要性,而且隨著水雉保育而開展的友善耕種理念,使得更多人重視了台灣環境,饒主秘也特別感謝園區工作人員、相關志工及友善耕作農友們的貢獻。
開幕活動中最受歡迎的是嘉義市垂楊國小的話劇表演《寂靜的春天與春光》,帶隊老師把3年來帶著同學在園區所學到的理念,寫成了這次表演的劇本,結局是農家終於了解農藥對環境的禍害,而選擇了友善耕作的方式,造福了自己及萬物,觀眾以最熱烈掌聲回饋這些小演員。活動中也安排了每年最受期待、也最緊張刺激的剝菱角達人大賽,饒主秘也參加了示範組競賽,感受到剝菱角的辛苦。
今年全台灣的水雉繁殖族群成果豐碩,今年7月的調查結果為857隻,官田地區即占了662隻,水雉族群數量的穩定成長,農民們的友善對待功不可沒。所以今年開幕的生態季綠市集,也邀請了很多當地實行友善耕作的農友加入,展示出今年推動重點之一「到農夫家小旅行」的成果,邀請農民們來現身說法,同時銷售他們的綠色標章農產品,讓民眾從參與中體會到友善環境的重要,鼓勵大家一起來支持。

“Let’s make a promise with the creatures. We’ll give them a home.” This is the theme of the“2017 Pheasant-tailed Jacana Ecological Festival” cohosted by BOHSR, Forestry Bureau, Tainan City Government, Guantien District Office, THSRC and Tainan Wild Bird Society. On Sep. 23, 2017 at 9:30am, the opening ceremony was held at the Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park. The target of the event was “Satoyama for Jacanase”, which is to restore farmland and wetland ecological services. The park located in Guantien District, Tainan strived to promote friendly farming in order to create an environment for the jacanas to live, forage and breed freely, achieving the true Satoyama spirit, which means that people and the environment coexist in harmony. Starting from the water chestnut field, the park strived to build a healthy and safe living habitat and to restore farmland and wetland ecological services in order to maintain the essentials of life for human and the biological common.
In the opening ceremony, all relevant units were fully cooperative. BOHSR also placed a high value on the event in which Chief Secretary Guo-Cheng Jao led associates to participate in the event. In the opening speech, he mentioned how he felt of the many times he visited the park, especially when rescuing the jacanas during the promoting period of the HSR project, then did he understand the need for environmental protection. In addition, with the development of the concept of friendly farming through jacana conservation, it made more people attach importance to our environment in Taiwan. Chief Secretary Guo-Cheng Jao also expressed special thanks to the staff of the park, relevant volunteers and the contribution of friendly farming farmers.
The most popular program in the opening event is the opera show, “The Quiet Spring and its Scenery”, performed by the young actors in Chiayi Municipal Chuiyang Elementary School. The teacher-director integrated the concepts that the students have learned at the park in the past 3 years and wrote it into the script of the play. The end showed that the farmer finally understood the scourge of pesticides to the environment and chose the way of friendly farming, ultimately benefiting the farmer himself and all living things. The audience gave these young actors and actresses the warmest applause. The activities arranged this year also included the most anticipated and exciting “Water Chestnut Peeling Competition” with Chief Secretary Jao participating in the demonstration group and feeling the hardships of peeling the water chestnuts.
This year, the results of jacana breeding groups in all habitats of Taiwan were fruitful. In July this year, the population count was 857, which 662 were in Guantien District. The effectiveness of friendly farming is indispensable to the steady growth of the jacana population. Therefore, the eco-season green market also invited a lot of local friendly farming practicers to join the event to show one of the focuses of this year’s promotion, “A Mini Voyage to the Farmer’s Home”. The event invited the farmers to share their experience with the crowd while selling their agricultural products with green label, so that they could encourage everyone to support the action and make people understand the importance of friendly environment through participation.
