The Common Cordgrass is spreading across Hong Kong’s wetlands and wreaking havoc. We have established "The Common Cordgrass Removal Action Team" to launch a series of Common Cordgrass removal activities.
The smart cunning owl, the energetic frog, the hardworking armadillo… They are all good friends of Dr. Nature. Yet, due to urbanisation and pollution to the countryside, the survival of these small animals is being threatened. Dr. Nature goes into kindergartens to join children on a journey to save these animal friends.
On Lantau, over 70% of land is still in undeveloped and contains rich biodiversity. More than 190 butterfly species, 60 dragonfly species, 30 reptiles and a dozen amphibians can be found there. Through a variety of activities, we explore the precious and beautiful nature of Lantau with the public.
The expansive blue ocean, the dense green woodland... We make Sai Kung an educational base for the public to walk among the blue and the green and learn about nature.
Black Kite is the most common raptor in Hong Kong and Sai Kung is a major haunt of the species. Each year in January, we organise the Hong Kong Black Kite Festival for more people to learn about the "king of the sky".
This scheme is a first attempt to combine rooftop garden infrastructure and environmental education. Three rooftop gardens with different themes—Herb Garden, Butterfly Garden and Organic Farm—have been built on three schools: on Hong Kong Island, in Kowloon and in the New Territories.
We add environmental infrastructure to public housing estates by planning tree trails and establishing butterfly gardens. Currently We have added eco-facilities to 52 estates, accounting for about one-third of all public housing in Hong Kong.
A butterfly with transparent wings, luminous mushrooms, a herb that can “shoot” and a bird that has skills like a “tailor”…. We head into primary schools, and explore the mysteries and wonders of nature.
The Black Kite is a common raptor in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is among the small number of cities where people can watch the Black Kite within a short distance. The Black Kite Festival in Hong Kong takes place every January and February to promote public awareness and conservation of Black Kites.
