Typhoon Island - Taiwan
Grüne Insel im Taifun
The spectacular island of Taiwan has long been buffeted by violent elemental forces, and a recent hurricane of human development has rocked it to its core. But at the eye of this dual storm, in the island's mysterious mountain heart, a huge variety of unique and little-known wildlife has survived. That may come as a surprise to many, since this is no lost wilderness, but one of the most densely populated places on earth: Taiwan, with over 20 million people inhabiting an area just 200 by 80 miles.
