About the Six Environmental Monsters


Rogue Tusker

Place of Birth: Unknown
Haunt: Developed cities
Evilness:
Profile: The giant monster is so crafty that it can transform itself into various forms of “white elephant” – for example the third airport runway, high-speed rail and so on.  It is good at persuading people to accept its presence, even though it is doing harm to the spots of high ecological value. It is hazardous to wildlife such as Chinese white dolphins. It takes a lot away from the community but it never gives back. 
 


Gaudy Goldy 

Place of Birth: Mountain in the New Territories
Haunt: Rural area
Evilness:
Profile: A self-centered rogue, who is  driven by monetary interest for everything.
