Here I have put /will keep putting some of my encounters with our local wild animals.
Hong Kong Mammals
Hong Kong Birds
Hong Kong Snakes
Hong Kong Lizards
Hong Kong Turtles
Hong Kong Amphibians
Hong Kong Bugs
Hikers “saving” baby owls from naturally predated by a snake was publicly praised by pet welfare groups… and “animal lovers”.
The virus has brought tons of people to hiking trails all of a sudden. Good for them. But for the environment, the negative impact is escalating. I believe most hikers have a good heart. But they may have to learn more about wildlife. Here’s my 2¢.
Hong Kong is small in land size but surprisingly rich in biodiversity. Most locals do not realize our tiny concrete jungle has the world’s largest owl, the most trafficked mammal, the second-largest lizard, endemic species found nowhere else, and all that, which are so significant and fragile at the same time.
