GET an update on Hong Kong's country parks and conservation matters with a switch of the computer screen.

A series of computer games and programs has been installed at the seven country park visitor centres. The computers light up with beautiful country park scenes, offer useful items of information, as well as a quiz.

The new system, designed for easy information access, is available in both Cantonese and English.

There are three segments. The first covers our country parks in general, dividing Hong Kong into six areas.

The second discusses tree planting, country park history, endangered species, hiking trails, community participation and work of the Country and Marine Parks Authority.

The last is a quiz on topics described in the previous segments.
