Fauna Hong Kong
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Fauna

Big animals have become rarer as the forest has decreased. You may still be able to spot a few bears, deer, porcupines and monkeys. Leopards and ant-eaters put in a rare appearance too. Hong Kong's fauna also consists of civets, bats, 250 species of birds, and a relatively rare and endemic dolphin species, the pink dolphin, which is an endangered species.
