Hong Kong Field Course

Hong Kong is a bustling metropolis located in a region of high biodiversity. It therefore makes an ideal location to explore biodiversity and how humans interact with, influence, and threaten wildlife, from the exploitation of natural resources to things like the illegal wildlife trade. Hong Kong is also surrounded by several comparatively preserved natural ecosystems, from tropical forests through to marine habitats. Despite intense urbanisation, several ecosystems have also recovered and biodiversity remains high in surrounding forests and marine zones (especially for birds, mammals, fish, butterflies, and other invertebrates). Hong Kong therefore makes an ideal location to study biodiversity, ecology, evolution, and behaviour, and to explore the challenges facing wildlife on global and regional scales. You will spend part the course in Hong Kong City, learning about threats to biodiversity and ecosystems, and part of the time located more rurally studying ecology and behaviour. Further information on the module will provided in term 3 of the final stage, including practical details about the field course. Find out more...
