"Country Parks 40th Anniversary" Roving Exhibition to be launched
Thursday, June 22, 2017

The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) will hold the "Country Parks 40th Anniversary" Roving Exhibition at D-Central Park of D·PARK, Tsuen Wan, from tomorrow (June 23) to June 26. Members of the public can learn more about the history and ecology of the country parks to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
 
The Roving Exhibition will showcase the milestones of country parks since their establishment. Photos taken in country parks by noted photographers, including Wandering Photography, Kelvin Yuen and Samson So, will also be displayed to allow the public to admire the beauty of nature. Virtual reality videos will also be shown to present the magnificent scenery of country parks vividly.

In addition, members of the public will be able to participate in handcraft workshops, computer games and game booths during the Roving Exhibition to enhance understanding of country parks. The public can also take a closer look at nature through a microscope to learn about the biodiversity of Hong Kong.
 
To protect the countryside, 40 per cent of Hong Kong's land area has been designated as 24 country parks and 22 special areas. The first batch of country parks was designated in 1977. The AFCD is committed to conserving country parks and protecting the rich local biodiversity. The AFCD has been holding a series of interesting events since April 2017 under the theme of "Country Parks Our Legacy" in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the country parks. These events also provide opportunities for public participation in conserving the countryside.
 
For details of the events, please visit the AFCD's website: cp40.afcd.gov.hk.
