The Challenges

  • Fung Yuen is facing a large-scale community development, a surge in population and buildings, and only 50 meters away from SSSI
  • Mikania (Mikania micrantha) grow rampantly, destroying vegetation and butterfly habitats.
  • Illegal butterfly catching and destruction of plants by unwelcome visitors
  • Lack of coordination in tourism activities caused human disturbance
  • Hill fire destroys vegetation and habitats
  • Illegal settings of traps endanger the survival of wild animals
