Operation & Management
According to 12th regulation of the National Park Act of the Republic of China, the land in the park is divided into five categories: Ecological Protection Areas (these are managed for their wilderness value, and are not open to the public), Special Scenic Areas, Archeological Protection Areas, Recreation Areas, and General Protection Areas. Protection projects and utility projects are undertaken according to the unique characteristics of each category's resources. This has achieved the aims of conservation, research and environmental educational recreation.
According to the National Park Act, the Ministry of the Interior is responsible for supervising the park. It's Construction and Planning Agency is responsible for the design and supervision of parks, and also supervises the headquarters of each national park and manages the park's conservation affairs. There are five administrative Sections and one police corps for each national park. The Sections are responsible for the following matters:
Planning Section
The Planning and management Section is responsible for park projects, managing national park affairs, purchasing park lands, and establishing regulations in the park area.
Environment Maintenance Section
The Environment Maintenance Section is responsible for preserving resources, and for transportation, accommodations, recreation, and reconstruction of historic relics. It is also responsible for surveying, and for managing building projects.

In summary, we could say that the purpose of the National Park Service is to advance the cause of environmental protection. In addition to conservation, it also works to develop the area for recreational purposes and to educate the public about conservation. The goal is for all people to value this million-year- old national treasure and not to spoil it for the sake of short-term benefits. In this way, future generations will also be able to enjoy the beautiful park.
