Hong Kong has rich biodiversity and a natural terrain close to the bustling city. The diverse habitats and wildlife provides city dwellers with numerous benefits, from providing fresh produce to inspiring us with seasonal colours. Conservation of biodiversity is important to the sustainable development of the city. In particular, with challenges such as climate change, we need concerted efforts across the society to conserve our valuable natural heritage.
With this in mind, the Government has formulated the first city-level Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) for Hong Kong, to step up biodiversity conservation and support sustainable development in the next five years. Various bureaux and departments will take the lead in implementing these actions, but in doing so we will also rely on the support from many other sectors and organisations.
In this website, you can find a brief introduction of this BSAP, information on relevant events and education activities, as well as links to relevant resources. We are looking forward to partnering with all sectors of the society to build a more sustainable future for Hong Kong.
