Hong Kong Wildtracks 香港自然蹤跡

香港生物多樣性非常豐富,在一千一百多平方公里的陸地上,有大量野生生物居住其中,有超過550種雀鳥、57種陸上哺乳動物、110種兩棲爬行動物等。這些生物不單與我們為鄰,更是香港的原居民,植根在這片土地上。

為推廣香港生物多樣性及保護自然生態,香港浸會大學國際學院連同香港觀鳥會聯合製作「香港自然蹤跡」網站及舉行展覽會,將地理資訊、生態知識及科學研究等元素結合。香港的生物多樣性研究及教育工作一般以視覺為主導,事實上亦可以透過視覺之外的感觀接觸及研究自然生態。為了讓公眾能夠以新的形式接觸香港自然世界及感受生物多樣性,有關活動以自然聲音為主題,建構一個自然生態聲音互動地圖和香港鳥類生物多樣性資料庫,旨在讓大專學界及公眾對香港的自然生態有更深度的認識及進行科學研究。

Hong Kong has rich biodiversity. This around 1,100 km2 land is the home of plenty wildlife, including over 550 bird species, 57 mammal species, 110 species of amphibians and reptiles etc. They are not only neighbours to us, but also the inhabitants of Hong Kong who share the same piece of land with us.

To promote Hong Kong's biodiversity and protect the natural ecology, the College of International Education, Hong Kong Baptist University and the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society jointly established the website "Hong Kong Wildtracks" and held an exhibition, which combines different elements of geographic information, ecology and scientific research. Despite research and education work on biodiversity usually rely on vision, senses other than vision are very useful in exploring and studying the nature. In order to promote local nature and biodiversity to the general public, "Hong Kong Wildtracks" adopts nature sound as the theme. Along with information from bird research, an interactive audio map incorporating an avifauna database is built. Universities and general public can have a better understanding on the local nature and conducting scientific research.
