"In Search of Relic Species from the Jurassic Period", a film documenting the Guanwu salamander, Hynobius formosanus, won an award at the 40th Worldfest Independent Film Festival. Especially notable was that an article in the Taiwan Journal states that the film documents the live birth of Guanwu salamanders. The Guanwu salamander was a recent discovery in 1996 and is found mainly in the Guanwu area of Shei-pa National Park in Taiwan.
