Ecological Hotspots Survey


The surveys were prompted by an incident at Sai Wan, Tai Long Wan in 2010, which aroused much public concern after the illegal development of the enclaves by a businessperson was exposed. Enclaves refer to the areas neighbouring, or sometimes surrounded by, country parks. Many of these areas lack proper landuse planning. Green Power, together with the Ecological Education and Resource Centre, have launched ecological surveys in enclaves of Sai Kung and later expand to sites with high ecological value on Lantau, to monitor local environmental changes.
