With the Lunar New Year holidays and a trip to Korea we haven't been able to post much during February. No fear. The silence doesn't mean things haven't been happening. On the dolphin front we have been working away on the issue. Wild at Heart sent two delegates to the Jeju WildLife Research Centre Workshop on Jeju Island, South Korea, from Feb 22-26 and they delivered presentations on the Fairy Pitta. A presentation on threats to the Fairy Pitta included Hushan Dam and briefly covered the humpback dolphin issue. Matsu's Fish Conservation Union has been having meetings and another meeting will be taking place in Lukang on Saturday 1 March 200. On Monday 3 March 2008 we will be visiting the Hushan Dam site and a meeting of concerned parties will also take place. Access to the Hushan Dam site is restricted and this will be the first time in months that we've been allowed into the area. Reports on what has been happening and Monday's visit will be posted next week.
