  From time to time, ESRI organizes various ecological training seminars for elementary and junior high school teachers, and workshops for grass-roots conservation workers and engineers. In addition, ESRI also cooperates with other organizations and groups to hold over 50 ecological conservation training sessions each year with over 2,000 participants.

c. Community-based Conservation and Guide Training

  In the past, ESRI has assisted in more than 20 communities, including Tao-mi Eco-village in Puli, to conduct bio-inventory survey, organize community-based eco-tourism, run training courses for guides, and hold promotional activities.
