2016 Taipei Eco-festival to Take Place on May 21
To raise public awareness on the importance of biodiversity, Taipei City Government joined hands with Chi Sing Eco-conservation Foundation to organize the “2016 Taipei Eco-festival” at the Xinyi Civic Hall (44 South Village) on Saturday, May 21.
The event commemorates the International Day of Biological Diversity on May 22. Furthermore, the organizers are working with the Chinese box turtle conservation team from National Chung Hsing University to promote the concept of wild animal conservation to visitors through the guest appearance of Chinese box turtle conservation mascot ambassador “A-shi.”
Animal Protection Office (APO) Director Yen I-feng noted that to bring the concept of biological diversity closer to the public, the organizers will display agricultural products from Laiji Tribe, hand-made steamed buns, and Chinese box turtle mascot products, offering visitors with an opportunity to help support conservation efforts for Chinese box turtles through purchases at the event.
According to the Chi Sing Eco-conservation Foundation, there will also be a conservation-themed marketplace and fun activities where participants can win small souvenirs. A raffle during events will yield winners who can bring home Taiwan black bear commemoration EasyCards.
In compliance with the city government’s directive on banning single-use and melamine utensils, participants will have to bring their own eco mugs and bags to the event. For more information on activities, please visit the Chinese website of the event: http://7stareco.wix.com/taipeief2016
