繫上樹木標籤 | Tree Tagging

前兩次介紹了水口計劃其中兩大元素(#研究及調查 #社區參與 )的進展,這次我們便來看看 #沼澤管理 的最新情況!如果大家最近有到過水口,會看見在沼澤小路旁的一些樹幹被繫上白色底,並印上黑色數字的標籤(圖1、2)。這些標籤是往後用來做樹木調查時,調查人員能一邊手執樹木地圖,一邊根據標籤數字去記錄樹種。完成調查後,將因應保育需要,進一步保育或移除樹木,以增加沼澤範圍的開闊度和濕地面積。

In the two previous posts, we have updated the processes on the two main elements (#ResearchAndStudies & #CommunityEngagement) of the Shui Hau Project. For this time, we will look at the latest news on the #MarshManagement! If you have been to Shui Hau recently, you might see the trees along the narrow road in the marsh were attached with tags of white background and black numbers (Figure 1 & 2). These tags will be helpful in the tree survey in the future, in which the surveyors will be able to record the tree species with the tags and maps. In order to create an open marsh area, management measures will be further implemented according to tree assessment results. That is to say, we may strengthen conservation measures or carry out selective tree removal.

在七月炎夏時,實習生們也加入了樹木標籤隊伍(圖3、4),一天內為八十多棵樹繫上標籤。在沼澤裡工作時會遇上不同生物,有一隻斑腿泛樹蛙更是跳到實習生的身上,瞪著亮晶晶的眼一直往上爬呢(圖5)。幸好實習生沒有被牠的熱情嚇到,大家更可以一起仔細觀察牠,也順道休息一下。完成工作後,沿著小路離去時,發現路被水牛擋住,牠看到我們後更是好奇地走過來。互相大眼瞪小眼了一陣子,大家便決定先後退,讓水牛慢慢走回沼澤後,我們才緩緩離開。經過辛勞的一天後,實習生們學會尊重自然,更了解到在濕地工作的挑戰和重要性了!!

In the hot summer of July, our student interns joined the tree tagging team (Figure 3 & 4), which tagged over 80 trees in a day. We have encountered different creatures during our work in the marsh, and there was once a Brown Tree Frog jumped onto the body of a student intern, blinking its eyes and climbing up (Figure 5). Fortunately, our student interns were not scared by its passion; they even tried to observe it carefully and take the opportunity to rest simultaneously. After finishing the work and being ready to call it a day, a buffalo blocked the road when we left the marsh, and the curious buffalo even rambled towards us. Gazing at each other for a while, we decided to go backwards and wait for the buffalo to return to the marsh sluggishly, then we slowly left. After a hard-working day, student interns have experienced how to respect the nature and understand the challenges and importance of working for a wetland!
