editor’s letter Welcome to spring, Saikungers! With temperatures on the rise and sunny days ahead, it looks like the Easter weekend is going to be one of Sai Kung’s busiest. While it’s great to see so many people enjoying our lovely town, it’s important to remember to look after the environment. If you find yourself up on the hills or tanning on the beach, please pick up and throw away some left over rubbish. If we all do our part we can have a happier and cleaner town. Our cover story this month is dedicated to Sai Kung’s eco-warriors (page 18), who invest countless hours to help make Sai Kung the best it can be. From organising recycling drives to monitoring illegal activities in Hoi Ha, our community wouldn’t be the same without them. A big environmental issue happening this month includes our beloved feral cattle (page 15), with a lack of grass many groups have opted for hand feeding and providing food for the cows, but has this encouraged the cows to rely on human support? If you’re looking to get away from the crowds this month, head over to some of Hong Kong’s most far-flung restaurants (page 22) to experience fresh seafood in obscure locations. Wishing you a lovely Easter break and relaxing month ahead.
