The Common Cordgrass Removal Action Team


The Common Cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) is an invasive species that grows rapidly, taking over large areas of wetlands, making it impossible for mangroves to grow naturally and threatening various precious animal species that inhabit the mangroves.

Pak Nai, Lau Fau Shan, is listed as a “Site of Special Scientific Interest”. The wetlands and mangroves in the area are important habitats for horseshoe crabs, egrets and seagrass, as well as the endangered Black-faced Spoonbill.

To halt the ongoing invasion of the Common Cordgrass across the wetland ecosystem, we continuously mobilise the public to carry out “the Common Cordgrass Removal Action” so as to recover the wetlands!
