This chapter provides suggestions on how the significant and natural heritage sources found in the Hong Kong Cemetery can be protected and preserved. Happy Valley is a significant historical landscape, and of the four cemeteries found along Happy Valley, the Hong Kong Cemetery is the oldest and the largest, not to mention the fact that it contains the oldest surviving colonial building in Hong Kong and it provides a valuable historic timeline of the evolution of the Hong Kong society. In this chapter three suggested steps are given that can help in the protection and preservation of the natural heritage of the Hong Kong Cemetery. These three steps that are discussed are: the protection of the cemetery as a historic cultural landscape; the preparation of a detailed conservation plan; and the participation of various stakeholder groups.
