    There are numerous reasons why birds choose Hong Kong as their home or only a stop of their migration. This shows that Mother Nature is constantly moving and ever-growing.
    In the post-war period, the forests in Hong Kong had been revitalised, and there were also an increasing number of types of forest birds. We will observe the interesting behaviour of forest birds. On the other hand, resident waders’ way of living has created a comparison to that of their migrant kinfolks. Today, the behaviour of birds is inevitably affected by human activities, and the situation is even more predominant in urban areas.

    • Coral Diving

      Coral Diving

      There are 84 species of stony corals found in Hong Kong waters, even more than the species found in the Caribbean.

      Are corals animals or plants? Apart from using their tentacles to capture food and attack each other, do they also know how to “lay eggs” to reproduce?

      Corals provide habitats for different kinds of marine species. What are the residents of these “houses”? Is it the hermit crabs who like to move around with sea anemones on their backs, the bay lobsters who wear a hard armour, or the frogfishes, the disguised master that can adjust their body color?

      In addition to the 7 million people that live in Hong Kong, another primate - macaques are roaming our picturesque reservoirs. In this episode, we join a newborn as he explores the world and learns life skills by mimicking the adults and playing with other youngsters. We observe the troop throughout the seasons, and discover their unique behaviours such as soil-eating.

    • Amiphibians in Hong Kong

      Amiphibians in Hong Kong

      We believe that life started in the water. Driven by evolution, it migrated to the land for the sake of more food or simply the water dried up in the environment. The amphibians act like something in between. Some like to be in the water most of their time and others prefer stay longer on the land. However, most of their juvenile stages in life cycle still highly depend on water. What are their strategies to ensure their youths can survive? Some make it by numbers and others learn some other techniques. No matter what, they have to finish their growth before the water dried up.

      There are over a hundred of species of bees and wasps in Hong Kong. Bees and wasps provide extraordinarily important ecosystem services, pollinating plants and getting rid of pests in our city and our countryside. In this episode, we meet the hardworking, the fierce and the cunning winged beasts - and attempt to decipher their complex way of life and distinct social structures. We witness a carpenter bee diligently collecting nectar, a wasp queen building up her colony, hornets massacring honeybees, and more. We also explore how they have adapted to living in different habitats by having their unique traits.
