Snappers a threat to terns, says bird society
Aug 18, 2012
Terns that fly in to lay eggs on remote islets during summer are under threat because of growing intrusion by photographers, the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society says.
The society says the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department has turned a blind eye to the worsening problem and urges a ban on visitors landing on islets that are prime breeding grounds of the seabirds.
