Listen to the Sounds inof Hoi Ha Wan
Hoi Ha Wan is one of the sea bays in Hong Kong with a higher coral coverage; its bio-diversity is comparable to that in the Caribbean. The coral, looking like a stone, is in fact the dwelling place of various marine organisms. While the beach along the coast of Hoi Ha Wan is also the dwelling place of large number of tiny organisms. Relying on the nourishment from the sea for their growth, they meet the daily challenge of high tide and low tide day by day. Besides, there are the mangroves, the unsung heroes for the elegant Hoi Ha Wan!
The different habitats of these organisms are closely related to each other, so are we and the nature. However, busy coastal development and excessive human interference seem to have turned the humans into an accomplice when it comes to the question of disturbance to marine ecology. If we want our next generation to be able to witness the beauty of Hoi Ha Wan the way we can, maybe we should carefully listen to the sound of Hoi Ha Wan.

Trees nourish everything, with every part of them from canopies to branches and leaves, all serve as the habitats and food for insects and avian. Banyan trees are the most visible tree type in Hong Kong. Their tenacious vitality allows them to take root and grow vertically on walls, which then transform into the exotic stonewall trees. Banyan trees disperse their seeds through avian faeces and rely on fig wasps, a less than 2-mm-long insect, to pollinate.
The Chinese banyan (ficus microcarpa) perched at the Kowloon Park is the oldest tree in the urban area of Hong Kong; and the Camphor tree (cinnamomum camphora) in She Shan Tsuen of Lam Tsuen is one of the oldest trees in the rural area of Hong Kong. It is estimated that both trees are approximately 400 years old. There is also a large stretch of Fung Shui Woods located in She Shan Tsuen where the Camphor tree is situated, which once gave She Shan Tsuen the reputation of “Butterfly Paradise”. However, such centenary trees and Fung Shui Woods are waning along with the development in rural area.
