Students from Berkeley and National Taiwan University performed a black-faced spoonbill "dance" at the Taipei's main railway station at a rally in support of the critically endangered bird.

The rally occurred during a spring break visit to Taiwan by 17 College of Enviornmental Design students, faculty and staff. The students are working to focus international attention on the dangers of an industrial complex proposed for Chi-gu lagoon in coastal Tainan County, Taiwan, the wintering ground of over half the world's 618 remaining spoonbills.

Berkeley and NTU students took part in a series of presentations -- made to local fishermen, national legislators and environmental groups -- on more positive and sustainable alternatives for the lagoon. Sheila Dickie photo.
