    In defense of the Leopard Cats in Taiwan


    In defense of the Leopard Cats in Taiwan


    The three major development projects promoted by Miaoli County Government happened to be located at the conservation area of the endangered leopard cats. Many organizations that are against the development projects have formed a “Leopard Cat Conservation Alliance” as to voice the leopard cats. This protest is scheduled in the afternoon of April 16th.


    The projects consist of the establishment of the bypass routes of 13 Provincial Highway in San Yi, the Houlong Funeral Park and Yulon (motor company) expansion plant.


    Miaoli County Magistrate Liu Cheng-hung proposed to purchase 20 hectares of forest land as an ecological compensation, yet Kurtis Pei, professor in the Institute of Wildlife Conservation, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, believes that the compensation would be meaningful only by creating another habitat for the leopard cats and repopulating the losses resulted from the development projects.
