香港觀鳥會聯同香港地貌岩石保育協會、大澳環境及發展關注協會、長春社、創建香港、綠色力量及世界自然基金會香港分會,向發展局局長林鄭月蛾遞交聯署信(見附件),表達我們對近期蒲台島發生的環境破壞事件的關注。

各團體歡迎政府各部門迅速採取行動,欣賞漁農自然護理署及地政署在接到投訴後立即到場調查及執法,城規會亦於3月2日刊憲公布蒲台群島發展審批地區草圖,亦在草圖的註解中肯定蒲台島的保育價值。
雖然如此,各團體亦指出現時尚有多個地區未受法定保護,導致破壞鄉郊環境的事件一再發生。

聯署團體要求政府著令地主為受影響地區進行復修,並於雨季來臨前完成,以免該區受到水土流失及山泥傾瀉影響;政府亦應盡快為其他有保育價值的地區引入法定保護,防止破壞環境行為繼續發生。

The HKBWS with Association for Geoconcervation, Hong Kong, Association for Tai O Environment and Development, Conservancy Association, Designing Hong Kong, Green Power and WWF-HK sent a Joint Letter (refer to attached) to the Secretary for Development expressing our concerns on recent environmental destruction occurred on Po Toi Island.

Undersigned Organisations welcome the prompt actions taken by the government. We appreciates that AFCD and Lands Department has investigated and carried out enforcement actions promptly after receiving reports, and the Town Planning Board has gazetted the Po Toi Islands Development Permission Area Plan on 2 March 2012 in which it has recognized the conservation value of Po Toi island in the notes of the Plan. However, we would like to point out that these environmental destruction all over Hong Kong are facilitated by the lack of statutory protection.

We urge the government to ask the land-owner to re-instate the site before wet season, to prevent further degradation of the site due to soil erosion and landslides. The government should offer statutory protection to the sites with conservation value, to prevent environmental vandalism in these sites.
