( The World Wide Fund for Nature and Epson Printers have jointly pioneered the Adopt-All-Dolphin Programme 2000 ( to find 'foster parents' for eight of the beautiful creatures who live off Lantau Island. For an annual sum of $290, foster parents will receive an adoption certificate, photographs, updates and a boat trip to observe the animals in their natural habitat. The goal of the adoption programme is to save the Chinese White Dolphin through the development of effective long term conservation measures.

Today is the first annual Community Chest Green Day ( that aims to raise awareness and funds for 800,000 impoverished residents. Participants are encouraged to devise and seek sponsorship for a 'green act' that will be carried out in the workplace on a suitable day before the end of June. Recycle all your waste paper or use a styrofoam substitute in the office! All involved will receive souvenirs and there are awards for the most creative green acts. It is anticipated that these green acts will become permanent green actions in the future.
