National Taiwan Museum and the Jane Goodall Institute of Taiwan are to host a wildlife conservation carnival today at the 228 Peace Memorial Park (228和平紀念公園) in Taipei.
The carnival, part of the institute’s Roots and Shoots program to encourage environmental conservation and wildlife awareness with children, is to feature musical performances, arts and crafts displays, and stamp-collecting games with souvenirs as prizes, Jane Goodall Institute of Taiwan executive director Kelly Kok (郭雪貞) said.
Booths set up at the carnival by 26 elementary schools from Taipei, New Taipei City and Hsinchu City would feature information about the animals they care for, she said.
“It will be a wonderful affair where people can come together to celebrate the diversity of nature,” she said, adding that more than 1,200 people are expected to attend. [FULL STORY]
