As inhabitants of the natural environment, people are obligated to protect, maintain, and preserve natural and cultural assets. The copper-winged bat—a unique protected species in the Yunlin and Chiayi counties—was employed as the theme of this study. This study compiled an electronic textbook containing Chinese educational riddles. After digital information learning regarding ecological conservation, Chinese idioms, local knowledge, and multimedia, in combination with animated riddle games, the results from 141 students were analyzed. Noteworthily, the students felt that the proposed program could provide them with conservation knowledge of Taiwan’s copper-winged bats and change their original impression of bats. Further, the high environmental conservation literacy demonstrated the results of environmental conservation education in Taiwan. In particular, this study found that watching animations and guessing idiom riddles improve students’ interest in learning and that their abilities to understand riddles allow them to appreciate the riddles. Therefore, it is suggested that digital electronic books integrating unique natural creatures and idiom-based riddle poetry can be provided to students as a contribution to education and cultural transmission. Moreover, digital teaching materials integrating biology and idioms are found to help promote the creative cultural industry, convey cultural ideas, build national images, transform the traditional manufacturing industry, create value for digital cultural products, and expand digital business opportunities.
