    “Avoiding a true sixth mass extinction will require rapid, greatly intensified efforts to conserve already threatened species, and to alleviate pressures on their populations – notably habitat loss, over-exploitation for economic gain and climate change,” the study’s authors write.


    – 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.
