  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Interactive murals across Hong Kong aim to boost support for bill to combat wildlife trafficking” – below is their description.

    Murals featuring the most-trafficked animals in Hong Kong are being splashed across the city. The augmented reality (AR) art is part of a campaign to raise awareness for a proposed law that seeks to prosecute suspected illegal wildlife traffickers under the city’s Organised and Serious Crimes Ordinance. Advocates say passage of the law would deter criminal syndicates from using Hong Kong as a hub for the illegal wildlife trade.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
