夜行探索 Night Walks

夜深人靜,大自然卻不會因為夜幕低垂而靜止,因為香港有很大部分的野生動物都是夜行性,這是因為夜間活動能為牠們躲避捕獵者的襲擊。也因為如此,在野外夜行探索能讓我們更容易接觸到不同的生物,包括很多我們平常甚少見到的哺乳類動物,如東亞豪豬、果子狸、赤麂甚至豹貓。除了哺乳類動物之外,很多兩棲類以及爬蟲類都活躍於晚上,當中包括香港特有品種盧氏小樹蛙。而早上負責傳播花粉的蝴蝶就會由飛蛾來接手,晚上更能夠觀察到螢火蟲以及不同的蜘蛛。每年春季至秋季是最適合進行夜行探索的時候,因為大部分動物都於每年的春夏季開始繁殖。我們會於夜行探索的時候為大家講解以及介紹不同的物種以及牠們不同的生存策略,讓大家能夠窺探這些神秘夜行動物的真面目。

Nature never rests even when night falls, as most animals in Hong Kong are nocturnal, this is to avoid predation from predators during the day. Because of that, Night Walks provide us with a chance to come into contact with these animals, including many mammals that we don’t often see, such as East Asian Porcupine, Masked Palm Civets, Red Muntjac or even Leopard Cats. Other than mammals, many amphibians and reptiles are more active at night, including the Romer’s Tree Frog which is endemic to Hong Kong. Butterflies which helps with pollination of plants during the day are replaced by moths, while fireflies and spiders are also far easier to find at night. Spring to autumn is the best time for Night Walks as most animlas breed during this time. We will introduce various wildlife and their life history encountered during the walk, unveiling the true nature of these mysterious creatures.

龍虎山 Lung Fu Shan 

這裡是香港面積最小的郊野公園,卻能找到不少有趣的物種!當中包括果子狸以及東亞豪豬。這裡的小溪流也能找到不同的兩棲類動物,包括大綠蛙、小棘蛙、香港湍蛙以及短腳角蟾等。

This is the smallest country park in Hong Kong, but there are many interesting animals to be found incluinding Masked Palm Civets and East Asian Porucpines. The stream also holds many amphibians including the Green Cascade Frog, Lesser Spiny Frog, Hong Kong Cascade Frog and Short-legged Toad.
