全港麻雀普查 2018 - 招募普查員

「麻雀」在我們的城市生活中經常出現,對牠的印象是熟悉,還是記憶模糊?對於這些與我們一起生活的鄰居,我們又知道多少?樹麻雀原本在農村的田裏生活,與人類較親近,後來發現有民居的地方,食物也會多一點。適應力十分強的樹麻雀克服了城市中高樓大廈的環境,找到安全的隙縫繁殖和養育下一代。

普查可幫助我們了解樹麻雀的分布和選巢傾向,更為我們提供重要基礎以作長時間監察牠們的群落趨勢。研究鳥類除了是鳥類專家的工作外,市民的參與亦即「公民科學」已逐漸成為國際趨勢,透過邀請及訓練市民大眾參與科學調查及保育工作,既讓市民可以參與科學研究,亦可以讓大眾享受觀鳥的樂趣。我們期望集市民的力量和智慧,一同保育香港的鳥類及牠們的居住環境。

全港麻雀普查已踏入第三年,加入成為麻雀普查員吧!

We frequently find “sparrows” being part of our city life. Do you find yourself being familiar with them or just  having a vague idea of who they are? How much do we know about these neighbors living close to us? Eurasian Tree Sparrows once lived in farmland and grassland in village areas, staying close to people. When they found that staying near where people live would give them more food . Sparrows with strong adaptability overcome the difficulties to live in such manmade place  with high-rise buildings and find themselves a safe place to raise their young.

Conducting a census will help us learn about the distribution of and preferred nesting place of sparrows. It helps us build a very important foundation to monitor their population in a long run. “Citizen Science” has been an international trend for having greater public participation. Researches on birds are not solely the work of ornithologists (i.e. bird experts). We would like to invite and train up members of general public to take part in scientific investigation and conservation work. People can get involved in scientific research while enjoying the fun of bird-watching. Let’s gather the power and wisdom of all people, and work on conserving our birds and their habitats in Hong Kong!

The sparrow census, now into its third year, welcome all of you to join!
