Safari SZHK is a self-guided tour of urban wildlife along urban transit lines around the world. We circulate podcasts and maps exploring the complexity, biodiversity, conflicts, and potentials of urban ecosystems. Who could imagine living in a world of glassy towers without the birds that roost in urban canyons? What would our public spaces be without a richly textured animal and vegetal world? With all the talk of global sustainable development, one thing is clear--cities and public transit are the future! Sustainable development is not just about high-tech solutions. It is about recognizing and fostering the links among health, environment, land use practices and behaviors, both human and animal. We invite you to use the city's subway system to tour our shared urban zoo! The East Rail and Luobao are physical, urban transects through the region's most diverse range of ecosystems, on both sides of the border. They connect Shekou Port to Victoria Harbor, passing through mangrove forests, urban villages, and high-rise roosts along the way. Safari SZHK circulates audio tours and maps exploring the complexity, biodiversity, conflicts, and potentials of urban ecosystems. Tours are available online, and can be downloaded for independent use.
