On 6 March 2020, we received this interesting looking legless reptile through our Wild Snake Rescue Project. Wait! Do you mean… this is a snake? No! It actually happens to be a legless lizard, called the European Glass Lizard (Pseudopus apodus) or the Sheltopusik (Shell-A-pill-sik), which means ‘yellow-bellied’ in Russian.

Summer is upon us and we are now in the busiest season for the Wild Animal Rescue Centre (WARC). Let’s take a look at the role of the WARC as it applies to the rescue and rehabilitation of wild birds!
Plants & Us

On a cool, sunny day, our team ventured onto Lantau Island, the largest island of Hong Kong, to collect seeds of native plants for conservation. The route planned for the day stretched across two streams in the island. The aim was to collect seeds of plants that grow well in bright, open areas. All necessary permits had already been issued by AFCD for KFBG to collect seeds in Hong Kong’s wild areas and Country Parks. All collections sourced in this way serve as the foundation for our conservation work and facilitate deeper biological and horticultural study.

Cambodia is home to 250 species of reptiles and amphibians, but these spectacular cold-blooded animals receive little research and conservation attention (Bezuijen et al., 2009). Most scientific efforts concentrated in the Cardamom Mountains to the west and the highlands to the north. In the recent years, more new species have been discovered in other parts of the country (Murdoch et al., 2019; Poyarkov et al., 2019).

Everyday nestlings’ feathers will grow and become more dense, eventually the wing feathers are formed and they are ready to learn how to fly. Much like human children learning to walk, they may stumble or even accidentally fall from the tree branch. So sometimes people might find juvenile birds on the ground. When seeing them wandering around helplessly, a good Samaritan may want to pick them up and take care of them. Thus, we often find good intentioned citizens asking what to do with birds they have found, on the internet.
