More offshore wind farms

The offshore wind farm threat to Taiwan’s Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins Sousa chinensis looks set to increase with the planning of a number wind farms within their existing habitat. Despite the obvious fact that the construction of wind farms will result in loss of habitat for the already struggling population of Taiwan’s Humpback dolphins, one also has to consider what other impact the construction of these proposed offshore wind farms will have on the Humpback dolphins.

See yesterday's China Post's article The Ministry of Economic Affairs to open offshore wind turbines
