WSPA membership for Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association
We are delighted to learn that Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association , who serve as Secretariat for our Matsu's Fish Conservation Union, have been accepted as a World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) member society.
"The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is the world’s largest network for animal welfare. It brings together over 880 member societies in 153 countries and a whole community of individuals around the world who care about animal welfare." - WSPA International
Wild becomes the third Taiwan based WSPA member society. The three Taiwan based WSPA member societies are EAST (Environment and Animal Society of Taiwan); Life Conservationist Association; and most recently Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association. Wild has cooperated with and worked alongside EAST a number of times in the past and they both remain members of the Taiwan National Coalition Against the Hushan Dam.
We congratulate Wild on their WSPA membership and look forward to WSPA and their member societies involvement in the plight of the Taiwan humpback dolphins and other Taiwan issues.
