Wildlife Preservation in Chiayi County, Taiwan
The Black-faced Spoonbill is currently listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and they can often be spotted around our Mingus solar project in the Yizhu township of Chiayi county in Taiwan where they migrate from winter.
Vena Energy committed significant resources to conduct enhanced impact assessment and mitigation planning for habitats, shorten the construction period so that it would not affect the winter migratory season and reserved an area of approximately 24.1-hectares for the Ecological Conservation Area, so that local wildlife including waterfowls can flourish. Vena collaborated with experts including Chinese Wild Bird Federation and Kun-Shan University to conduct monthly environmental monitoring. The restoration of existing evaporation ponds and enhancement of some of the crystallisation ponds enables the wildlife to live in harmony with our solar project, thus preserving the ecological balance.
