CPAMI designated “Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance,” implemented conservation of local bio-diversity, launched the inter-dependent activities of wetland ecotourism and education, and publicized Taiwan’s conservation achievements to the international community. CPAMI established “Notes of Operation for Selecting -Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance-,” and held “Delineation of Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance Recommended Operating Briefings,” on December 14, 2006, inviting related ministries and bureaus in the Executive Yuan, municipalities, county (and city) governments, private organizations, and academic institutes to collaborate in the endeavor.

At the beginning of 2007, CPAMI embarked on a project to select and evaluate Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance. On December 10, 2007, CPAMI completed its evaluation, recognizing 75 important wetlands. Of these, Zengwun Estuary and Sihcao Wetland of Tainan City were “international class” wetlands.
In January 2011, CPAMI designated 17 new wetlands, including 4 whose boundaries were adjusted and 11 that were consolidated and categorized into various types of wetland in the Danshui River Basin. This produced a total of 82 important wetlands, covering an area of 56,865 ha.

In 2007, CPAMI published “Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance.” This has now been amended by the 2011 publication of “Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance.” In addition to explaining evaluation process and listing “Taiwan’s Wetlands of Importance,” this publication aims to integrate the ecological resources and features of these 82 important wetlands as a reference for the public to work on conservation, restoration, and education.
