Participation of non-governmental organization (NGOs) would be important for our plantation enrichment work and further promoting the benefits of PEP on increasing the biodiversity and ecological value of plantations in country parks. NGOs with the following criteria are welcome to participate in the project:

  • must be a locally registered non-profit making organization;
  • have rich experience and good track records in organizing large-scale public tree planting and tree tending activities in country parks;
  • possess professional knowledge, and are actively involved in woodland habitat management and local ecological conservation work; and
  • are willing to commit at least 5 years for each selected PEP site.

Details of the project arrangement are summarized in the following table:

*: annual arrangement for new PEP sites

With the involvement of the Government, the NGOs and the public in the PEP, it is believed that it will provide a good opportunity to promote the public awareness about the benefits and values of biodiversity across all sectors of the society.
