Biodiversity and the ecosystems of Taiwan and its off-shore islands have greatly influenced the lives of different generations. Ten hectares of water and green land have been reserved in the Taiwan History Park to build retention lakes and a complete ecological environment. The use of different landscapes and Taiwanese indigenous plants provides a varied natural environment. After years of hard work, the Museum has also successfully attracted many resident and migrant species.
Through ecosystem management, we have preserved natural biodiversity habitats in recent years, attracting many insects and resident and migratory birds. Different natural scenery can be observed according to the different seasons. From May to September each year, butterflies and dragonflies are active. The peacock butterfly and the common leopard butterfly can be seen in the park. Moreover, moorhens, mallards, little grebes, great egrets, little egrets, and yellow bitterns can be seen from the birdwatching decks. Pheasant-tailed jacanas, a second-rank protected animal, have been observed for four consecutive years at Lotus Lake. Migratory birds like eurasian wigeons, dusky moorhens, little ringed plovers and black-winged stilts can be seen from November to March.

reticulate-veined cinnamon tree
Formosan nato tree
aristolochia heterophylla hemsl
Chinese soap berry
Botel Tobago cinnamon Tree
