覆水难收 (fu4 shui3 nan2 shou1) is a Chinese proverb that can be translated as “It’s no use crying over spilt milk”. A more literal translation is “Spilt water is difficult to pick up”. This is closer to the meaning that I am looking for, that once something is done, it cannot be undone.
So this site is about problems: it is about poaching; it is about the animal trade; and it is about China. One day I hope we will know the solutions to these problems, and one day I hope that China will will know the solution to her environmental problems, too. But for now, the purpose of this site is to collect information on issues of varying urgency; for now, the message of this site is to raise awareness.
