Introduction

The "CORAL REEFStoration Ambassador Programme" is supported by Sino Group and Hong Kong Innovation Foundation, in partnership with Ocean Park, archiREEF and The Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel.

Throughout this programme, primary and secondary school students will learn about the life of corals, their important contribution to marine biodiversity, and how to preserve and protect them for future generations. Ambassadors will be taught through online seminars delivered by experts, as well as a Grand Aquarium tour at Ocean Park to have a closer look of the behind-the-scene coral ecosystem.

As the theme of this ambassador programme is "Coral Restoration", all students from participating schools can attend online coral conservation seminars, and participating students can become programme ambassador by designing a "Coral Restoration" activity booth on campus to promote the importance of coral conservation to the school members.

Ten students demonstrating outstanding performance will be selected as "Star Coral REEFStorator" and continue to learn in-depth knowledge of coral conservation through physical and interactive experiences, such as fun-filled Grand Aquarium snorkelling, Tung Ping Chau eco-tour, coastal clean-up and exciting coral husbandry experience.
