Hong Kong Wildtracks

Hong Kong has rich biodiversity. This around 1,100 km2 land is the home of plenty wildlife, including over 550 bird species, 57 mammal species, 110 species of amphibians and reptiles etc. They are not only neighbours to us, but also the inhabitants of Hong Kong who share the same piece of land with us.

To promote Hong Kong’s biodiversity and protect the natural ecology, the College of International Education, Hong Kong Baptist University and the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society jointly established the website “Hong Kong Wildtracks” and held an exhibition, which combines different elements of geographic information, ecology and scientific research. Despite research and education work on biodiversity usually rely on vision, senses other than vision are very useful in exploring and studying the nature. In order to promote local nature and biodiversity to the general public, “Hong Kong Wildtracks” adopts nature sound as the theme. Along with information from bird research, an interactive audio map incorporating an avifauna database is built. Universities and general public can have a better understanding on the local nature and conducting scientific research.
