Roving exhibition promotes bird-watching in urban parks
*******************************************************


A roving exhibition on common wild birds seen in urban parks will visit six major parks from December 6 to January 11, 2004.

The exhibition, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), aims to arouse public interest in bird-watching and enhance environmental awareness.

"Bird-watching is an enjoyable and meaningful activity," an LCSD spokesperson said. "Through bird-watching, we can cultivate keen observation, patience and perseverance.

"As we appreciate how all things on earth are closely linked in the natural environment, we become more positive in participating in and supporting environmental protection work."

The roving exhibition will introduce beginners to the basic skills of bird-watching and display photos and descriptions of over 20 species of common birds.

The first exhibition will be held at the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in Central on December 6 and 7 from 10am to 4pm.

The other stops on the exhibition's itinerary are:

Venue Period

Hong Kong Park 8 - 14/12/2003

Visitors to the Zoological and Botanical Gardens on December 6 and 7 can also join the "Behind-the-scenes" guided tours to see the animal enclosures and the food preparation centre.
