Don't allow our wetlands to become 'fish deadlands'

文字-A A +A

Kaohsiung's Zhongdu Wetland Park (中都濕地公園) covers an area of 12.6 hectares, and is one of the city government's major construction projects. The park is located in a densely populated metropolitan area with heavy traffic. It is in this highly developed environment, that after more than half a century, Kaohsiung City Government intends to restore the mangrove wetlands and natural ecosystem to its former glory.

However, at the same time, it will endeavor to preserve Kaohsiung's industrial heritage and incorporate the surrounding schools into the overall plan; the intention is to create a symbiosis of nature and cultural identity that coexist in harmony. Unfortunately, there appears to exist a great disparity between the government's bold plans and the quality of construction.

After only a year, poor water quality and a lack of water movement has given rise to fish begin scorched to death under the sweltering sun, while on dry land, the decaying beams and columns of a driftwood pavilion leave it precariously leaning. In addition, there is neither an emerging wetlands prototype, nor a flourishing wetlands ecology.

On the contrary, one is left with an overriding sense of danger at every turn, calling into question the quality of work, and just how this project passed inspections. It is clear that these artificially constructed wetlands will require a huge investment of financial and material resources to provide on-going support and maintenance.

別讓中都濕地成魚屍地 影音

高雄「中都濕地公園」佔地12.6公頃,是高雄市政府重大工程建設之一。它位於交通流量大、人口稠密的都會區,在高度開發的環境中,高雄市政府試圖還原超過半世紀以前的老高雄河海濕地紅樹林自然生態,同時保存高雄的產業歷史軌跡,並將周邊學校預定地納入整體考量,自然與人文的共生、共存,在這裡得到最好的平衡。但市府魄力與工程品質,卻無法畫上等號,因為完工迄今不過年餘光景,但汙濁又流動不佳的池水,換來的是曝曬的魚屍,岸邊以漂流木搭建的涼亭早因梁柱腐朽而傾斜,吊橋扶手也早已破損不堪,我們不但看不出任何濕地的雛型,也看不出濕地該有的生態鏈,反有一種危機四伏的感覺,我們更質疑這樣的品質,是如何驗收過關的,人工打造的濕地,顯然需要更龐大的財力與物力來支撐與維持。
