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:
The Planning and management Section is responsible for park projects, managing national park affairs,
purchasing park lands, and establishing regulations in the park area.
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.
The Conservation & Research Section is responsible for investigating and planning
conservation and research projects concerning ecological systems of forests, historic
relics and scenery.
The Recreation and Services is responsible for the management of tourists, recreational
projects and tourist trade.
The Interpretation & Education Section is responsible for planning interpretation
facilities, training interpreters, editing information in other languages, providing
interpretation services, setting up exhibitions in the service center, and raising
public awareness of conservation issues.
The Police Corps is responsible for public security, maintaining order, and protecting
resources. It also assists in cases where the National Park Act is violated.
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.
