Bird watching society calls for action on loss of valuable land Listen
A conservation group has accused the government of failing to plug loopholes that it says are leading to the loss of valuable farmland, wetland and green belt sites in the city. The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society says people are being allowed to build small houses and so-called hobby farms, even complete with barbecue or caravan sites, on ecologically important land, which could lead to irreversible damage. It also says illegal fly-tipping on wetlands isn't always dealt with, because of a lack of law enforcement powers. The society's senior conservation officer, Woo Ming-chuan, told Ben Tse why this is the case.
