Wild at Heart, the environmental organization, has a great article on raptor killings in Taiwan this week.

Media reports of possibly thousands of Grey-faced Buzzard Eagle and smaller numbers of other raptors being hunted during the recent September-October migration period in the Southern Taiwan, Kenting National Park area are worrying. Once again, there is a need to raise awareness and highlight the plight of Taiwan’s raptors and insist that the authorities take action against those responsible. Additional measures must be put in place to protect these magnificent birds as they pass through Taiwan in their thousands in one of nature’s greatest spectacles.

Wild at Heart does great things for Taiwan, and is a force for progress on this island. If you have some spare change, drop it in their donation box. They’ll put it to good use.
