The 30-day public consultation period for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report for the third runway was from 20 June to 19 July 2014. As the dolphins cannot speak for themselves, we need to voice out their concerns on their behalf, as they are an integral part of our Hong Kong community. The “30 Third Runway Victims” by Hong Kong Dolphin Conservation Society – 30 dolphins are going to tell us their stories, and why they are so concerned about the third runway expansion. They hope the public can give them a hand to submit comments to the Environmental Protection Department and Advisory Council on the Environment, in order to put pressure on government to scrutinize third runway EIA for the best interest of the dolphins. During the public consultation period, we recruited 100 volunteers – “Dolphin Guardians” and hold a series of events that include public training sessions, street stalls, seminars as well as pledge.
