Fostering Appreciation and Preservation for Biodiversity Heritage

As the first museum in Hong Kong dedicated to biodiversity and the home to 50,000 specimens of plants, fungi and animals, the Hong Kong Biodiversity Museum (HKBM) has welcomed over 35,000 visitors and hundreds of school groups since its establishment in May 2021. Disseminating knowledge on ecosystems, species biology and their conservation, the museum offers a unique view of the natural heritage while promoting environmental education and fostering biodiversity appreciation.
