Since 1996, the Feitsui Reservoir has been conducting ecological research on the Yellow-margined Box Turtle. In 2012, we analyzed the data collected through long-term research projects. The results show that there is a stable number of the Yellow-margined Box Turtle, considered as one of the most stable populations in Taiwan. On December 10, 2013, the Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan established the Feitsui Reservoir Snake-eating (Yellow-margined Box) Turtle Wildlife Refuge, in order to preserve their provenance. It has become a great model of freshwater turtle conservation in the world.
