Wuwei Harbor Waterfowl Sanctuary
Wuwei Harbor is a wetland area located in Suao Township, Ilan County.
Because it is a stopping point for migratory birds passing through the area
in the fall and winter, and because its rich and unique wetland flora and fauna
provide birds with a good source of food, it is one of Taiwan's two largest
protected wintering areas for waterfowl. In order to safeguard its function as
a habitat for wintering waterfowl and prevent ecological damage due to pollution,
Wuwei Harbor has been designated a wildlife sanctuary and accorded full
protection and planning measures.
One of Taiwan's two largest wintering grounds for waterfowl, Wuwei Harbor
Waterfowl Sanctuary is home to several thousand wild ducks and geese
from November of each year through March of the following year. At least 140
species of birds have been recorded here. The abundant waterfowl residing
here during fall and winter sometimes number more than a thousand at one time.
