[Reporter Xu Shiying/Taipei Report] The latest documentary "Guarding the Black-faced Spoonbill", directed by Liang Jiede, spanned 30 years and traveled to many countries, is currently being screened in Taiwan.
Although the black-faced spoonbill recorded in this film is a bird familiar to the people of Taiwan, thanks to the efforts of everyone, the number of black-faced spoonbills has grown from 969 in 2002 to over 6,000 at present. When the film was released, the fact that the black-faced spoonbill is still a "global endangered species" still shocked many viewers.
Scholars are doing their best to protect the areas where black-faced spoonbills are currently infested.
An artificial island in an industrial area in Incheon, South Korea, observed that black-faced spoonbills gradually gathered and even nested, so they provided nest materials artificially, so that the number of nests soared. The black-faced spoonbills built a new exclusive artificial island.

In addition, the Taipa Wetland in Macau is also one of the precious habitats of black-faced spoonbills. Director Liang Jie had to share about this wetland: "Macau is a place where every inch of land is expensive, and the development pressure there is very high. There are big casinos and It is a big hotel, but the Macau government still prioritizes conservation to designate a protected area, and I heard from friends that the value of that land is as high as hundreds of billions of dollars.”
Taiwan, which has the No. 1 number of black-faced spoonbills in the winter, also spares no effort in the conservation of black-faced spoonbills. Since 2020, Taijiang National Park has cooperated with local breeding industry to promote the "Friendly Habitat Creation Project" ", the industry that applies for cooperation, cooperates with sunning during the winter season of black-faced spoonbills every year, maintains a certain water level for more than 5 consecutive days, does not accept trash fish, does not drive away birds, and also assists in monitoring friendly behaviors such as birds. Receive subsidies, counseling rewards, etc., so that the public can work together to "protect the black-faced spoonbill".
In addition, every year in the places where black-faced spoonbills are found around the world, all regions will join together to conduct a "global census of black-faced spoonbills" simultaneously, and work together to complete this important transnational task.
