Ulsan has been running the Egret Ecology School every year since 2009 in order to highlight the preservation value of the Taehwagang Migratory Bird Park, the largest urban Egret habitat in the country, and to promote its excellence.
The upcoming summer break is a great opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school students to come accompanied by their parents to observe and experience the ecological characteristics of the 8,000 Egrets living in the Taehwagang Migratory Bird Park with easy and fun explanations from ecological commentators and bird experts.
