回到賽夏族矮靈祭現場(一)~神秘的矮人傳說

環資中心 - 三, 2011/11/16 - 05:00
作者:Sophie Seeing (文字工作者)

中型公車駛離竹東市區,在進入以前的五峰檢查哨之後,沿著「上坪溪」往上攀升,途中經過幾座山地村,聚居著泰雅族和賽夏族人,我在「高峰」部落下了車。四月的大隘村十分平靜,看著溪邊對岸森林茂密的竹林山,我試圖找出矮人的洞穴。2006年12月的那場午夜盛會,步伐緩慢的舞圈、曲調哀怨的歌聲,以及最後一天的溪邊笑語,又悄然回到我腦海中。

2010年的最後一天,一早和C開車到后里去拜訪中科三期的農民們。陽光很好但風很強,廖明田會長卻穿著一件薄杉、一件外套就了事。問他冷嗎?他說哪會。笑著沏茶,在一方斗室聊著,新環評過關後,當初承諾農民的事做到了嗎?沒有,一件也沒有。而聽說前些天一位國科會到廖會長家裡拜訪他,卻帶著一位女性來推銷直銷產品,廖會長搖頭笑了起來,我們也都笑了,在整個島嶼熱鬧慶祝,所謂建國一百年的這天。

【兔拜年】每個人都能找到足夠的理由來保護大城濕地

環資中心 - 三, 2011/02/02 - 04:51
作者:陳瑞賓(台灣環境資訊協會秘書長)

寫在兔年前夕,最想跟各位讀者分享的是一年來參與推動彰化濁水溪口北岸濕地(搶救白海豚)的信託工作。整個工作至今已有5萬多人參與認股,總共約250萬股的濕地,可以說立下了台灣保育的新里程碑。但是,在信託申請的進度,比預期的緩慢許多。這當中牽涉到營建署頭一遭遇到公益信託申請案,公務人員經驗不足,再加上政策上並不支持保護大城濕地的緣故。所以,想盡辦法卡住此一信託案的申請。

Dead Roaches, Bug Bites & Crusty Sheets: TripAdvisor's 10 Dirtiest Hotels

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 二, 2011/02/01 - 22:00
I think we all have one of those hotel horror stories to share. Am I right? Mine was a childhood road trip to Nashville, Tennessee with my parents. On a tight budget, a classically cheap motel was chosen. That night in Tennessee, the sheets were so pill-y and dotted with mysterious stains, I remember refusing to slide even just one leg under cover. Instead, I slept on top of the the scratchy, synthetic comforter. It felt safer that way. My parents and I laughed and cracked jokes through the night but the experience forever shaped...

捐款1500‧成為台東成功夢想園地的推手‧並贈得獎民族植物套書

環資中心 - 二, 2011/02/01 - 21:59
台東土地上的幸福信託‧邀請您捐款支持‧成為夢想園地的推手‧一起尋回山的記憶募集單位:台灣環境資訊協會

2000年,我們開始接觸英國和日本國民信託組織,學習到以「土地信託」來保護環境和守護棲地。2006年,我們擁有了第一塊地,一塊位在台東成功鎮海岸山脈上六甲大的廢棄果園。這一塊土地,將因為您的支持參與,離夢想越來越近!

● 一種思考

台灣土地高度利用下,棲地保育更顯得珍貴。而「環境信託」是實踐棲地保育的途徑之一,也是全民可以參與的方式。

● 一個夢想

我們希望能夠擁有一塊土地的管理權,可以好好且有系統性的開展工作假期與棲地保育結合的理念。

從環境資源調查、在地部落與社區連結、外地志工參與,結合傳統文化與生態特色。一邊畫出園區的藍圖,一邊藉由工作假期將藍圖實踐,一步一步緩慢但扎實的歷程,享受人與自然最原始且和諧的相處方式。

環保年菜過新年 吃出健康與永續

環資中心 - 二, 2011/02/01 - 11:12
本報2011年2月1日台北訊,特約記者廖靜蕙整理報導

除夕夜在即,年夜飯總是充滿誘惑,其實年夜飯也可以吃得健康、安心又環保,以下就介紹幾個秘訣。

不吃魚翅 真永續

你的餐桌上有魚翅、海參、鮑魚、髮菜嗎?牠們幾乎都是年夜飯的主角,但是因為人類不節制地消費,已經嚴重影響牠們的生存。

隨著民間團體大力呼籲停售「魚翅年菜」,全台四大超商,包括7-11、OK、全家等3家業者已不再販售「魚翅年菜」;萊爾富公司則表示,今年年菜預購型錄上出現的2道魚翅料理,用的都是「環保魚翅」,並非真的魚翅。

0126百萬青年站出來──反國光石化運動的甜蜜果實

環資中心 - 二, 2011/02/01 - 05:00
作者:munch

起初,反國光石化的各團體,還在猶豫著,要不要在第四次專案小組會議前,進行大規摸抗爭,還是舉行記者會就好。但是,全國青年反國光石化聯盟覺得該是集結的時刻,農陣吳佳玲說,原本只是發出訊息,想在專家會議前的記者會,多些到場相挺的學生。

沒想到反應熱烈,台大農村實踐小組、政大返穀讀書會、清大環境議題小組,以及相互串聯的大學院校,太多近年來參與各種環境議題的大學生,都願意參與這項活動。

於是,從記者會變晚會,又從晚會變成跨夜抗爭的堅決行動。

青年學子出來了!

Donate Sewing Scraps to Schools

Planet Green Work & Connect - 一, 2011/01/31 - 22:21
There are lots of ways to green your sewing by using every last scrap of fabric. You could make a necklace, an apron, a pincushion, and a lot more, but if you've made all the pincushions you and everyone you know will ever need, why not pass your scraps on to a school? Kids are back in school, and that means teachers will be looking for cheap or free materials for students to explore art and design. Cereal boxes and paper towel tubes are always a hit, but scraps of fabric as small as tiny squares and triangles... Read the full story on Planet Green

當一年接近尾聲的時候,大自然的生命樂章也逐漸沉寂了下來。一些昆蟲隨著生命到達了終點而消逝,有些則是蟄伏在地底下。無論是居家周圍環境,或是山地郊野,白天遇見昆蟲的機會都少了許多。不過即使在這樣的季節裡,每逢陽光普照的晴天,仍然有機會可以見到一些出來覓食的豆娘。

The Most Expensive Yacht in the World: It's a City on Water

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 六, 2011/01/29 - 21:00
It's 508 feet long and built to mimic the streets of Monaco. This $1.1 billion yacht will become the most expensive in the world. While it's just in the design stages, to call the boat lavish is a blatant understatement. Red Orbit describes the city atop water: "The super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris. Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platfor... Read the full story on Planet Green

Snake River Salmon Make 'Great Migration' of 900 Miles, But Are Going Belly Up (Video)

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 四, 2011/01/27 - 22:15
Snake River salmon are a "wow" species. They spawn by making a journey of 900 miles, to altitudes of 7,000 feet in the northwestern United States. No other salmon species on Earth goes higher or farther in the name of procreation. But they have to pass through eight dams on their way there ... and most of these magnificent fish don't make it past four of those dams in the lower Snake River. Such is the story of "The Greatest Migration," which could turn into a "What a Shame" extinction if action isn't taken to remove the four structures. "The Greatest Migration" is a documentary being used by the nonprofit Save Our Wild Salmon to tell the tale of the... Read the full story on Planet Green

4 Tips to Planning a Sabbatical and Traveling the Globe

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 四, 2011/01/27 - 21:00
We all dream about it. Sitting at our desks, twiddling our thumbs, and dreaming of lands far and wide. Envisioning ourselves dropping it all to circle the globe. We won't be gone forever, unless one of the lands we globetrot to holds us captive by its beauty. But few of us have the guts to do it. We're scared that once we get back our work will have dried up or promotion opportunities will have dwindled. Most universities offer the opportunity to qualify for paid sabbatical leave as an employee benefit, but what if you're not a professor? Is there a way to take a break from work without going broke? 1. Save Your Cash If you're planning on taking a sabbatical from work without going broke you have to save your dough.

The 4-Hour Staycation: Crazy Short, Insanely Refreshing

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 二, 2011/01/25 - 23:15
I know that what I'm about to say is going to sound entirely spoiled because well, it is. For the past three years I've managed to make a warm winter escape by both work (hosting yoga retreats or writing) and pleasure -- from Brazil to Mexico. For a sun-needy creature and wanderlust like me, the voyages came at perfect timing-- smack dab mid-January or February, breaking up the drudgery of Brooklyn's drab gray sky, and ice-crusted cement. I'd arrive back in my urban abode, refreshed with memories of white-sand beaches, laid-back days and sun-kissed with a glow that re-charged my batteries and left me uplifted until spring's arrival. Without work taking me away somewhere toasty and tropical, an... Read the full story on Planet Green

Endangered Whooping Cranes Make Multi-State Journey Before They're Shot and Killed

Planet Green Travel & Outdoor - 二, 2011/01/25 - 22:15
Here's an adventure story with a deadly twist. There are about 570 whooping cranes left in the world. A group of five recently were sent out on migration, to learn from older cranes and find suitable winter habitat in the U.S. That was, until three of the five were downed by gunshots, and discovered near Albany, Georgia. This mystery has a $12,500 reward attached to solving it. According to The Tennessean, this was the first migration south for the five birds, who were banded and equipped with transmitters as part of the 2010 Direct Autumn Release program. The cranes were part of a Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership effort to ... Read the full story on Planet Green
