In order to protect its Dongshi properties, Taiwan Sugar Corp. planted a windbreak on Aogu Wetlands, which later became a great flora/fauna habitat thanks to the excellent location where Beigang River meets the Liujiao Drainage Channel as well as the network of deserted farmland, fish farms, plantations and Beef Woods that crisscrosses the wetlands. Designated by the authorities in 2009 as the location for the Aogu Wildlife Conservation Sanctuary (overseen by Chiayi County Government), this wetland area features over 200 bird species and consequently draws attention from ornithologists worldwide. Among the internationally protected species inhabiting Aogu Wetlands are the Oriental White Stork, Black Stork, Black-faced Spoonbill, Chinese Egret, Sparrow-hawk, Chinese Sparrow Hawk, Grey-faced Buzzard, Osprey, Spotted Greenshank, Painted Snipe, Little Tern, and Brown Shrike. If the season is right, it will take just a short while to spot them either perching on tree branches or cheerfully greeting visitors by the pond-side.
