Critical Commentary

Jinshan district, located on the north coast of Taiwan, always attracts migratory birds to stay in the wetland between the suburban hill and the coast where peasants cultivate the hydroponic plant. Due to the arrival of the Siberian White Crane, Chiu Ming-Yuan, the chairman of the Taiwan Ecological Engineering Foundation (TEEF), started his promotion of eco-friendly farming. Chiu and his foundation paid double for the crops grow in the wetland that provide sufficient food for Siberian White Crane. While suggesting that old peasants irrigate the wasteland again, Chiu also gave guidance in developing eco-friendly tourism and education. 

 

To manage an environmental engineering program in Jinshan district, Taiwan Ecological Engineering Foundation and the affiliated Spring Thunder Environmental Study Club (春雷環境學社) followed the examples of the Satoyama Initiative to develop a draft for Jinshan. In this picture, you can see the Taiwan's Satoyama vision in Jinshan emphasize three aspects: habitat restoration, industrial recovery, and ecological education.
