Taroko Gorge National Park
(in Hualien County)
Taiwan, a mountainous island with abundant natural resources, is situated within three major climatic zones. Its various topography endows the island with very diverse biological aspects. The protection of Taiwan’s natural ecosystems is a unique and difficult challenge. Mountainous topography and different forest types are combined with large-scale human development in Taiwan to create an ecological island within the actual physical island itself. To protect these ecological islands, the government has set aside nearly 10 percent of the land in a multi-tiered conservation system that includes six National Parks, 18 nature preserves, 20 nature reserves, and one wildlife sanctuary.
