Event Details
 
While Hong Kong people are working day and night for better living, the notorious “Environmental Monsters” have already begun nibbling away at the local environment! Will you turn a blind eye, or stand up against the dark side?
 
2018 is a particularly hot and dry year, making the Big Boss “Flame Thrower” stronger than ever. It vows to burn Hong Kong’s countryside, from tall mountains to wetlands, to ashes. Therefore, we need YOU to join us and become one of our Eco-rangers – hunt down “Flame Thrower” and other monsters to extinguish the fires!
