- no such sense of urgency evident in Hong Kong’s BSAP [loadacrap] efforts to date.

Instead, woefully feeble “conservation” efforts let damage continue at Pui O and elsewhere; deaths by 1000 cuts… [not that HK is unique in this]

 

Interestingly, I think, the selection of ten endangered animals at end of article includes two HK species: S China Tiger already extinct here [v likely from wild], and Chinese Pangolin.
