Life (cycle) of the Hong Kong Newt

In 2023, the death of the whale off Sai Kung sparked concern for Hong Kong's wildlife and their habitats. Despite the perception of Hong Kong as a concrete jungle, its rich biodiversity and the lives of its wild animals often go unnoticed.
Among the countless species, the Hong Kong Newt (Paramesotriton hongkongensis ) takes the centre stage this time. Fung Hon Shing and his friends is inspired by their unique life cycle, from the growth of eggs and larvae in freshwater streams to their migrations between forests and streams as adults. Witnessing their captivating competitive and mating behaviours during the breeding season is touching and at the same time exciting. However, a devastating discovery emerged during a spring survey: over a hundred Hong Kong Newts tragically perished on Fei Ngo Shan Road, abruptly ending their life cycle on the concrete road.
To raise awareness and promote conservation efforts, Fung and his exhibition team are envisioning a groundbreaking showcase exclusively dedicated to the Hong Kong Newt. This exihibit is scheduled to be launched in April 2024. The project will feature captivating paintings, mesmerizing photography, insightful documentary shorts, and immersive installations. During this presentation, you will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the project and discover the fascinating stories of the newts' daily lives. Moreover, you will confront the challenges they encounter and actively engage in the conservation discourse surrounding these issues.
*Light refreshment will be provided at the talk.
