Celebrate World Ocean Day in Hoi Ha
Celebrate World Ocean Day in Hoi Ha.
Here is a plug for a worthy cause.....and a good organisation. (If you have something you would like to share, do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org).
World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. Encompass HK, a local social enterprise promoting the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals, is organizing an outing at Hoi Ha Wan, one of the first Marine Parks in Hong Kong, with an expert guide accompanying us to introduce the fauna and flora of the area.
With an AFCD-estimated 45,000 visitors in 2015, Hoi Ha Wan is Hong Kong’s most accessible Marine Park and is a popular destination for day trippers. Watch out for monkeys in the trees, cows on the road, and a stunning view over Long Harbour as the road drops down from Pak Tam Au. With a wealth of corals, including 64 of the 84 species of stony corals found in Hong Kong, Hoi Ha Wan has been a Site of Special Scientific Interest since 1986 and was gazetted as a Marine Park in 1996. We will explore the diversity of marine life in the mangrove and sandy shore habitats at HHW.
Date: June 7 (Sunday) 1030am-5pm.
Fee: $280, including lunch, guide fee, donation to Friends of Hoi Ha
