Yong'an-Salt Pan wetland
The Yong'an Salt Pan Wetland (Yong'an Yantiancyu), characterizes by huge mangrove coverage and rich wildlife, is a major wetland in Taiwan. The approximately 130 hectares wetland was once called the Dark Forest (Wusulin) Salt Pan and was an important one on the island before it was purchased by the Taiwan Power Company for coal ash residue-depositing land in 1984. However the plan did not work out, and the land was soon left uncared for. As a result, natural mangrove started developing, attracting over 110 species of birds into the region including peregrine falcons, Kentish plover, and others. It is enlisted important wetland at local level in 1997.

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.
