The Cordgrass Removal Action Team


The Cordgrass (Spartina spp.) 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 Cordgrass across the wetland ecosystem, Green Power has established "The Cordgrass Removal Action Team" to launch a series of Cordgrass removal activities to recover the wetlands.

(More removal activities will be held, please stay tuned for further announcement on our website)
