Exploring Lung Fu Shan : A Nature Guide
Extending from the city limits to Victoria Peak, Lung Fu Shan Country Park is Hong Kong's smallest country park. It is also one of the most ecologically diverse, with a variety of plant and animal life, spectacular views, and a network of woodland walks. Drawing on four years of nature surveys by staff and volunteers from the University of Hong Kong, the guide introduces the wildlife and the historical spots in Lung Fu Shan, suggests several walking routes, and offers advice and tips on observing flora and fauna at observation checkpoints. The guide includes around 200 colour photographs and several maps. Jointly established by the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the Environmental Protection Department of the Hong Kong SAR Government, the Lung Fu Shan Environmental Education Centre is managed by the Kadoorie Institute of HKU, which promotes research, teaching, consultancy and community outreach in the fields of sustainability and the environment.
The book aims to arouse readers' interest in Hong Kong's natural environment and wildlife. It is intended for hikers, beginners in wildlife watching, nature lovers, and people looking for a place to get away from the city.
