Wazihwei Nature Reserve
Taiwan

挖子尾位在淡水河口的左岸,與淡水共扼淡水河口,因為入海口地形彎曲,所以稱為「挖子」。昔日因沿岸水深可泊舟船,為漢人來台開發較早的地區,清初即為船隻停泊之處所。清雍正12年,已經有了街市,後來由於淡水河口淤積嚴重,乾隆以後已經逐漸沒落。


此地為一典型的河口生態系,水筆仔攔截淡水河挾帶之大量泥沙及有機物,形成一片沼澤地。但由於河水受到污染,且有許多業者於該區附近採砂,致使具有國土保安功能的紅樹林生存受到威脅。為了保存紅樹林及其伴生動、植物所形成的生態系,避免受到人為干擾,農委會於民國83年1月,將該區公告為「挖子尾自然保留區」。

本區位於台北縣八里鄉淡水河口南岸,緊臨觀音山地,周圍有大屯山系和觀音山系形成天然屏障。

挖子尾的動物有鳥類、蟹類、貝類及魚類等。貝類有文蛤、燒酒螺、孔雀蛤、牡蠣、玉黍螺、藤壺﹔魚類方面有彈塗魚及花跳等。鳥類約100多種,以候鳥為主,其中以唐白鷺在本區之出現,最值得重視,這是一種由國際自然保育聯盟 (IUCN) 所認定之瀕臨滅絕種。近五年來,由於當地環境改變,唐白鷺和其他種鳥類之出現情形,有減少之趨勢。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
