In this territory of less than 2,000 square kilometers, 40% of land has been designated as country parks, where natural environments and habitats are carefully preserved. These country parks one important bleeding grounds for butterflies, which are supported by copious flora and fauna that Nourish in the mild and moist subtropical demote. Indeed, our butterfly resources are extremely rich. Of all the species recorded in China, a land moss 10,000 times bigger than Hong Kong, more than 10% lover 230 species can be found locally. Given this great diversity and the close proximity of most country parks to the city, Hong Kong is on ideal place to watch and study these beautiful winged creatures.
