Wild At Heart

Wild at Heart: Protecting Taiwan's Environment

Winkler Partners supports the work of the Wild At Heart legal defense fund.  Wild at Heart has two full-time lawyers and several support research staff. Lawyers from Winkler Partners also contribute pro bono legal services.

  • Smangus –Wild at Heart assisted in defending  villagers from  Smangus, one of Taiwan’s most remote Atayal communities, against criminal charges of misappropriating state timber after a typhoon. The villagers were acquitted on appeal.
  • Kuokuang Petrochemical Project –Wild at Heart provided legal services to an alliance of public interest groups whose opposition to the Kuokuang Petrochemicals plant on the coast of central Taiwan led to cancellation of the project in a historic victory for Taiwanese environmentalism.
  • Indo-Pacific humpbacked dolphin–Wild at Heart has worked for nearly a decade to save an endangered population of pink dolphins off of Taiwan’s west coast.
  • Taiwan Central Science Park–Wild at Heart filed litigation on  behalf of local landowners to revoke  the Central Science Park environmental impact assessment permit. The Supreme Administrative Court upheld revocation of the permit, in a landmark decision marking the first time that an environmental impact assessment had been successfully challenged in the courts.
  • Songshan Tobacco Factory–Wild at Heart represents residents who have filed litigation against development of a former tobacco plant in East Taipei.

While “carbon” is the common subject of sequestration these days, our program aims to look for opportunities presented by the gifts of the Earth by:

  • collecting rainwater to reduce the water used by our toilet
  • transforming our rooftop into a tropical refuge for plants, insects and birds,
  • recycling with our rooftop composting toilet, and
  • greening our office.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

  • Air conditioners are used sparingly and are set to 26 degree Celsius
  • An extensive recycling program quantifies our use of paper, plastics, and non-biodegradable waste
  • Our energy awareness program tracks our use of energy and has reduced consumption by installing low-energy lighting appliances and maximizing our use of natural light
  • Our bike program encourages colleagues to ride to work and in our neighborhood.
