Marine Environment Gallery: Our Ocean the Mother of Taiwan

Taiwan owes its bounty to its mother, the ocean, with its climate being profoundly influenced by the large volume of warm water that is brought by the Kuroshio Current. Growth of all things on the island finds nourishment from the abundant rainfall generated by changes in the winds. Moreover, given the rich marine life also brought by the current, Taiwan's diet and culture have also been deeply affected by the ocean and all kinds of marine related industries have become major contributors to the nation's economy. However, we also have to ask how well is this surrounding marine environment understood by denizens of this land? Before jumping into the vast topics of marine science and technology, the initial exhibition of the "Marine Environment Gallery" asks visitors to first stop and appreciate the unique richness and beauty of the oceans surrounding Taiwan. Furthermore, they should come to understand that the marine environment is becoming increasingly vulnerable: the ocean is a mother that needs our care and protection.
