Native or Not? Invasive and Native Species in Hong Kong's Nature Reserves
Teacher: Dr Evan PICKETT, Faculty of Science
Level: F.4 - F.6
The flora and fauna of Hong Kong are made up of unique native species. In this workshop, students will see some of these plants and animals that live in the forests of Hong Kong and learn to identify them including birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and plants. The afternoon will be spent looking at plants and birds whilst the night time will be spent looking for the nocturnal reptiles, amphibians and mammals. Students will learn how and why exotic species are introduced and why they become such a problem for the native flora and fauna.
Remarks: The workshop consists of two field sessions (pre- and postsunset) at Pok Fu Lam Reservoir and a tutorial.
