There are 77 pieces of pocket area including villages and private land of considerable area. Meanwhile, pocket areas possess extraordinarily rich natural resources.
We started our investigation in a pocket area at Sai Kung in 2005. Hence, we published and submitted the report to the governmentas reference for policy making. We urge the approval of outline zoning plan by the Town Planning Board in order to protect the pocket area from destruction.
She Tau, Tit Kim Hang, Wong Chuk Yeung, Sham Chung, Pak Sha O, Hoi Ha, Mao Ping Lao Uk, MuiTiz Lam and etc. have also been investigated by us. Furthermore, we have started survey at Tung Chung Bay, ShuiHau and elsewhere alike. We like to understand the ecology of Hong Kong more thoroughly through systematic investigation, and thus achieve better management and conservation.
