Ecological Islet of Taiwan’s Endemic Forests
Based on the principle of waste minimization and earthwork balance, the municipal task force used the earth and stone from the excavation of the circular waterways to build the Central Ecological Islet of Taiwan’s Endemic Forests and the slopes around the Park.
There are over 2,000 Taiwanese indigenous plants recovered on the Ecological Islet.
The earth and stone from the excavation of the waterways are used
to build the Central Ecological Islet.
The walking paths on the Islet are built in accordance with the principle of low-degree development, allowing the public to immerse themselves in nature without disturbing the creatures There are no hedges between the Park and road trees, creating an
open living space.
The Islet is equipped with wooden walking paths, but for the restoration of the ecology, there is no lighting along the paths.
The Monitoring Tower
Given that international-grade wetlands are all equipped with monitoring systems, the Ecological Islet of Taiwan’s Endemic Forests also has its monitoring tower on the hilltop to monitor any changes in Jhongdou Wetlands Park in a timely manner, including the water level and the status of birds, animals and plants. The monitoring system is linked to the ecological education center, so that researchers can look over the ecology here.
