P.5 General Studies "Native Freshwater Conservation Turtles Education Programme - Habitat Clean-up Activity”

Date: 12/05/2023

Due to Hong Kong mountainous terrain with little flatland and high precipitation rate, habitats of native freshwater turtles including streams and rivers were formed. However, discarded items left by human leisure and recreational activities could be easily blown to freshwater habitats and are imposing risks to native freshwater turtles. OPCF, hereby, joins hands with different organizations, including primary and secondary schools, colleges, local community groups and private organizations, so as to clean up and restore the natural habitats for native freshwater turtles.
