All at sea

Fruit fun
Children from Pingtung County learn to cultivate pineapples with a local charitable organization (慈惠善導書院) in this photograph, taken Monday, May 8. The organization teaches the children the techniques of farming and making products from agricultural produce in order to give them a chance to earn tuition money for school.
 
Pingtung's dirty secret
Environmental protection authorities on Saturday traced water pollution to a surprise culprit: a backyard operation that was turning the intestines of slaughtered pigs into a human pharmaceutical.
 
Making waves with power
This photo taken on Thursday, May 4, shows solar panels on Pingtung County's Niupu River. The county government has installed the third solar panel system on the river, rejecting locals' concerns that the installation would affect the flow of the river.
 
Rise of the machines
An automated onion-harvesting machine is unveiled on a Hengchun Peninsula farm Friday. The area has long been one of the biggest local producers of onion, but the aging of the population and shortage of workers in the area had made developing such machinery a necessity.
 
Don't feed the fish
In this undated file photo, a scuba diver is surrounded by tropical fish in Kenting National Park, Pingtung. Park administrators said Thursday they would now strictly enforce the rule that visitors may not feed the wild animals in the park -- a violation subject to a NT$3,000 fine. Home to sika deer, monkeys and rare fish, Kenting has seen a rash of visitors using food to get the animals' attention, park administrators said.
 
Round the Island: Astute fruit marketing
Mini fruit has become a major success in Pingtung.
 
An American in Pingtung has been detained for having marijuana sent to him from the U.S. and could face over five years behind bars, reports said Thursday.
 
Putting prisons to work
The rooftops of Pingtung County's prison are lined with solar panels. The county's prison held a ceremony for the project's completion, making it the first solar-powered prison in Taiwan. Half of the prison's rooftops will be equipped with the panels and rake in NT$720,000 per year for the nation's coffers.
 
An indigenous graduation
Students from Pingtung County's Mudan Elementary School (牡丹國小), dressed in indigenous clothing, jump during a graduation photoshoot. Local photographer Yang Wen-yi (楊文逸) recently embarked on a journey to provide free photoshoots for indigenous schools located in rural areas. During his journey, Yang took graduation photos and put together graduation albums for students at the schools -- all without accepting a dime.
