The Marine National Park Headquarters (MNPH) hosted 3 keynote speeches on themes such as the distribution and changes of Dongsha Atoll and sea grass with remote sensing images, current resource allocation of macrophytic algae in Dongsha, and repurposing the resource of Tsai te a (vegetable house) on the Four Islands of Southern Penghu at the Visitor Center of Metropolitan Park in Kaohsiung on Friday, May 15, 2015. Fruitful conservation research results of the MNPH in the past year were presented at the conference through specialist’s descriptions and the exhibition of survey videos.

The conservation research conference exhibited fruitful research results such as keynote speeches and research articles to the audience for their references.

The deputy director of the MNPH, Mr. Chih-Kuang Lu indicated that, although Dongsha Atoll National Park and South Penghu Marine National Park are away from the main Taiwan island and transportation is inconvenient, it is needed to preserve their natural resources and landscapes. The research results of the habitats in Dongsha Atoll and macrophytic algae distribution in Dongsha with satellite image analyses can help us comprehend the overall environmental changes in Dongsha habitat. In addition, field guides will be published to distribute the scientific marine knowledge regarding ecological resources of algae in Dongsha. The conformed-to-nature landscape in Tsai te a (vegetable house) on the Four Islands of Southern Penghu is one of the important resources, features and targets for conservation. Therefore, the function and distribution of Tsai te a (vegetable house) will be the future references for the following repurposing projects of MNPH.

To upgrade the broadness of surveys in Dongsha Atoll, the MNPH started to regularly measure the habitat situations in Dongsha Atoll with satellite images taken by FORMOSAT-2 this year (2015). Furthermore, the MNPH also started resource survey of flora and migratory birds in Dongsha and flora and ecological resource investigations between the waters and intertidal zones in Four Islands of Southern Penghu this year. Associated research results will be presented to the audience in 2016. Hopefully, through the demonstration of conservation research results of Marine National Parks, the MNPH will be able to gradually cultivate and establish our residents’ consciousness of marine conservation and thus accomplish adequate protection system for marine resources and welcome the future with sustainable development.
