In the press conference, the two organizations also demonstrated their coastline conservation achievements over the past year, such as the drawing of Taiwan coastline's ecological map and the setup of Taiwan Coast Network website.
Postal cards with scenes of the nine beautiful beaches published by Standard Chartered Bank were also shown in the press conference. By distributing the postal cards, Standard Chartered Bank hopes to make the public aware of these beautiful beaches, and encourage the public to participate in more coastline conservation efforts.
Environmental Protection Administration Minister Stephen Shen (沈世宏) praised the joining of forces between the private sector and the NGO organization to educate the public about conservation. He said that it is important for the public to understand the importance of oceans and work with the government in saving Taiwan's beaches
