 Firefly development requires a harsh climate that includes both forest territory and pure, pollution-free water sources. The need for environmental preservation has grown in recent years, and many locations are actively restoring firefly ecosystems. Every April and May, you can see fireflies dancing at night everywhere from Yangmingshan in Taipei to Dongshih Forest Garden in Taichung and to Namasial in Kaohsiung. Remind people to observe the following rules when taking part in firefly enjoyment activities: don't create noise, don't capture fireflies, and don't beam flashlight directly on fireflies. To ensure that everyone can take in the majesty of fireflies without harming the environment, [Taiwan Immigrants’ Global News Network] has compiled a list of readers' favorite guided activities and firefly sighting locations throughout Taiwan.
