The Working Group on Situation of Animals and the Environment in the District under the Environmental Hygiene, Climate Change, Agriculture and Fisheries Committee of the Sai Kung District Council is now inviting proposals from tertiary institutions under the Sai Kung District Council Funds for Community Involvement Projects with an aim to solve the hygiene and community issues caused by feral pigeons congregating in Sai Kung.  Please refer to the relevant survey (available only in Chinese version) on such issue.

 

西貢區議會環境衞生、氣候變化及漁農委員會轄下區內動物與環境情況工作小組(下稱「工作小組」)希望透過西貢區社區參與計劃撥款與本地大專院校進行研究,以尋找應對西貢區內野鴿問題的最佳方案。有關西貢區野鴿問題,可參閱調查摘要

 

The Working Group, via conducting scientific and systematic survey, intends to collect the following information to facilitate the discussion on the issue and for the follow-up work of the relevant government departments:

  1. the data on the congregating and the living habits of the feral pigeons in the Sai Kung District (areas covering Hang Hau, Po Lam and Tiu Keng Leng);
  2. the effective solutions on tackling the issues with non-intrusive measures to alleviate the environmental hygiene problems and the nuisance caused;
  3. the impact on other feral bird species if adopting contraceptive drugs in bird feeds and etc.
     

工作小組希望透過進行科學及系統化的研究,以掌握下列的資料,以便討論合宜可行的野鴿應對方案供相關的政府部門跟進:

  1. 西貢區內(即坑口,寶林及調景嶺一帶)野鴿的聚集情況及相關生活習慣的數據;
  2. 在樓宇密集的城市環境有效應對野鴿的方法,並以非傷害性的方式驅鴿,達到人鴿共存,減少環境衞生及滋擾問題;及
  3. 使用避孕糧控制野鴿數量對區內受保護野鳥(例如珠頸斑鳩)直接及間接的影響等。
