However, the effort is not only limited to the conservation measures applied in the countryside or rural areas. As a cosmopolitan city and international hub, Hong Kong plays a role in depleting natural resources worldwide. The aim of this symposium is to explore how wildlife conservation could be achieved through four aspects in the human dimension — education, community engagement, green finance and ecotourism.
