Friends of the Foundation - Hong Kong Newt Eco-tour (November 2018)


Have you seen Hong Kong newt before?
The Hong Kong newt (Paramesotriton hongkongensis) is the only species of salamander native to Hong Kong, however they are listed “Near Threatened” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). They are threatened by fresh water pollution, habitat degradation and pet trade.

Living in a busy city like Hong Kong, it is not easy to realise the existence of this local resident. Here is a good opportunity to get away from the bustling city and to learn to appreciate this native Hong Kong species. The Friends of the Foundation is going to organise an eco-tour at Ma On Shan Country Park where we will walk into the forest and mountain streams and have a closer encounter with the Hong Kong newt and the amazing mother Nature.
