  1. It has been sometime since I saved an email about the cris threatening the leopard cats in this area of Taiwan. I will check some on the web to determine their current status.

Traffic congestion on holidays and peak hours can be resolved by traffic control and further allocation of parking spaces. The bypass route does not benefit our county and it breaches local ecology and wildlife will suffer! We request the Miaoli County magistrate and the government to stop this project!
