Presenters: Kenneth Lam and James Kwok
Location: Virtual meeting via Zoom
Despite Hong Kong’s compact size and reputation as a “concrete jungle”, the territory has an extraordinarily high level of biodiversity since Hong Kong has thousands of square kilometers of rugged coastline, mountain ranges and country parks. So not surprisingly it is home to an impressive range of wildlife. Straddling the transition zone between the tropics and the temperate region, its biodiversity is greater than usually found in such a small area. What is more, few places in the world allow people to travel from the city center to the middle of the natural world in the space of an hour or less.
This talk on bird watching in Hong Kong by The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society (HKBWS) will bring you to different habitats in Hong Kong and know more about the background of Hong Kong, common bird species and bird watching tips in the mentioned habitats.
