Dragonfly Paradise – Sha Lo Tung
Sha Lo Tung is the only freshwater wetland surrounded by hills in Hong Kong. In 1997, it was designated as a “Site of Special Scientific Interest”. It is home to many rare species of insects and animals and is best known for its dragonfly diversity. More than 80 species of dragonflies have been recorded there, representing over 60% of all species in Hong Kong.
Habitat and Biodiversity Conservation Scheme in Sha Lo Tung
Green Power has been supported by CCO’s Management Agreement, responsible for the habitat and biodiversity conservation work, which aims at enhancing the “eco-pond” and “artificial marshes”, and preserving other wetlands. The Agreement cooperates with villagers to promote organic farming, habitat, and biodiversity survey. Also, to prevent illegal hunting, off-road vehicles, and hill fires.
