Here's a message being circulated by email. I post with caveat, that I don't believe AFCD is major culprit in trail concreting and fencing. - just in email to one of campaign organisers: perhaps key culprit isn't afcd, but local govts (district councils or whatever) within afcd is i think some support for wilder trails; ideally, support rather than alienate these people. Could highlight good trails, eg I've mentioned to a guy re new trail linking Tai O w Fan Lau - involved a stretch w rock steps (when maybe could have just opted for concrete)
"Whether you are a mountain biker, trail runner, hiker or someone who simply loves to be outdoors this email applies to you. Please read and pass on to all similar-minded persons and try to help in any way possible. SAVE OUR TRAILS CAMPAIGN There seems to have been quite a bit of "insensitive" trail repair work by the Agriculture Fisheries Conservation Department (AFCD) over the last few months: Sir Cecils Ride, Lady Clementiâ€™s, Yuen Tun Trail (Tai Lam CP) to name a few. It might be well-meaning, but the result is to ruin the existing character of the trails until they would be more suitable to a Central sidewalk than a Country Park hiking trail. We would like to start gathering information on inappropriate trail maintenance that can be used later as proof that people are concerned that the trails are being ruined and the natural beauty of Hong Kong's trails are being lost. We are urging all people who use the outdoors to come forward and support us, by returning an email to the address below and pledging your support. We hope to show the governing bodies that there is a thriving outdoors community who do not wish to see the trails ruined. Send your replies to: email@example.com Thank you. OUR OBJECTIVES To maintain transparency throughout this campaign, below is a list of the objectives that we hope to acheive: To gather public opinion and support to keep existing trails in as natural a state as possible; To raise awareness of Hong Kong as a destination for outdoors activities; To clarify and influence AFCD's decision-making policy on trail maintenance; To encourage and work with AFCD on the correct maintenance of trails to safeguard them for outdoor sports But it cannot be done alone: please give your support. Just pledging your support by e-mail will be very useful - if you would like to get more involved, perhaps by representing the interests of your particular sport or activity, please also let us know." ç„¡è«–ä½ æ˜¯çˆ¬å±±å–®è»Šæ‰‹, è¶Šé‡Žè³½æ‰‹,è¡Œå±±äººå£«æˆ–åªæ˜¯ä¸€å€‹å–œæ¡æˆ¶å¤–çš„äºº,é€™å°é›»éƒµèˆ‡ä½ æœ‰é—œ. è«‹ä½ é–±è®€å¾Œå‚³é€çµ¦èˆ‡ä½ å¿—åŒé“åˆçš„äººæˆ–å¹«å¿™ æ‹¯æ•‘æˆ‘å€‘çš„é è¶³å¾‘è¡Œå‹• è¿‘å¹¾å€‹æœˆ, ä¼¼ä¹Žæœ‰äº›ç”±æ¼è¾²è‡ªç„¶è·ç†ç½²ä¸»ç†çš„é è¶³å¾‘ç¶ä¿®å·¥ç¨‹ä¸è¿‘äººæƒ…, ä¾‹å¦‚é‡‘ç£é¦³é¦¬å¾‘, é‡‘å¤«äººé¦³é¦¬å¾‘å’Œåœ“å¢©éƒŠéŠå¾‘. é€™åŽŸæœ¬å¯èƒ½æ˜¯å‡ºæ–¼å¥½æ„çš„, ä½†å°±ä»¤åˆ°å®ƒå€‘å¤±åŽ»äº†æœ¬æœ‰çš„ç‰¹è‰², ç›´åˆ°å®ƒå€‘è®Šæˆåƒä¸ç’°çš„è¡—é“,è€Œä¸å†æ˜¯éƒŠé‡Žå…¬åœ’å¾‘. æˆ‘å€‘ç¾åœ¨æ£æœé›†ä¸é©ç•¶çš„é è¶³å¾‘ç¶ä¿®å·¥ç¨‹. å¾žè€Œä¹‹å¾Œç”¨ä½œè¡¨é”å¤§å®¶å°é è¶³å¾‘è¢«ç ´å£žå’Œå¤±åŽ»é¦™æ¸¯è‡ªç„¶æ™¯è‰²çš„é—œæ³¨. æˆ‘å€‘è«‹æ±‚æ‰€æœ‰æœƒåˆ°æˆ¶å¤–çš„äººç«™å‡ºä¾†åŽ»æ”¯æŒæˆ‘å€‘, è«‹å¯„é›»éƒµåˆ°ä»¥ä¸‹çš„åœ°å€ä¾†è¦‹è‰ä½ å€‘çš„æ”¯æŒ. æˆ‘å€‘å¸Œæœ›å‘æ”¿åºœæœ‰é—œç•¶å±€è¡¨é”æœ‰ä¸€ç¾¤ç†±æ„›æˆ¶å¤–çš„äººå£«ä¸å¸Œæœ›è¦‹åˆ°é è¶³å¾‘è¢«ç ´å£ž. è«‹å¯„é›»éƒµåˆ° : firstname.lastname@example.org å¤šè¬. æˆ‘å€‘çš„ç›®æ¨™ ç‚ºç¶æŒé€™é …æ´»å‹•çš„é€æ˜Žåº¦, ä»¥ä¸‹åˆ—å‡ºæˆ‘å€‘çš„ç›®æ¨™ æ”¶é›†å…¬çœ¾æ„è¦‹å’Œæ”¯æŒåŽ»ä»¤åˆ°é è¶³å¾‘èƒ½ç¶æŒåŽŸæœ‰çš„é‚£éº¼è‡ªç„¶ æé«˜å°é¦™æ¸¯ä½œç‚ºæˆ¶å¤–æ´»å‹•çš„ç›®çš„åœ°çš„æ³¨æ„ è§£é‡‹å’Œå½±éŸ¿æ¼è¾²ç½²å°é è¶³å¾‘ç¶ä¿®å·¥ç¨‹çš„æ”¿ç– é¼“å‹µå’Œèˆ‡æ¼è¾²ç½²åˆä½œåŽ»åˆ¶å®šæ£ç¢ºçš„é è¶³å¾‘ç¶ä¿®å·¥ç¨‹,å¾žè€Œä¿è·å®ƒå€‘çµ¦äºˆæˆ¶å¤–é‹å‹•æ„›å¥½è€… ä½†é€™æ˜¯ä¸èƒ½ä¾é ä¸€å€‹äººçš„åŠ›é‡ : è«‹æ”¯æŒæˆ‘å€‘.å¯„é›»éƒµä¾†è¦‹è‰ä½ å€‘çš„æ”¯æŒå·²æ˜¯å¾ˆæœ‰ç”¨äº†. å¦‚æžœä½ æƒ³æ›´æŠ•å…¥åƒèˆ‡ â€“ å¯èƒ½æ˜¯ä»£è¡¨ä½ å–œæ¡çš„æ´»å‹•çš„æ„›å¥½è€…- è«‹å‘Šè¨´æˆ‘å€‘.
