In 1994, the first green turtle wearing a satellite tracker "Wangan No.1" set out from Wangan in Penghu, passed Taiwan Strait, through East China Sea Shelf, up to an island south of Kyushu in Japan, spent three years and traveled 3400km back to Penghu, providing an important record for the research of sea turtle ecological history in Taiwan.
Many beaches on Taiwan Island were recorded to have sea turtles coming ashore to lay eggs, but now, there are only a few places left; among which, the reserve in Wangan Township of Penghu County is the one place where green turtles visit more often and more steady to lay eggs.
Standing southeast of Wanganyu, the building shaped like a sea turtle is the “Green Turtle Tourism and Conservation Center”. Upon entering, you can see all the natural ecologies in Wangan, including migratory birds and protected animals, and of course, the most important of all, “green turtles”; exhibitions include: turtle species, distributed environment and ecology, all exhibitions that are well-worth exploring.
