We are now having a chance to explore Tai Tam SSSI – a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with diverse terrestrial and marine habitats, including HK island’s last mangrove. Please join our second citizen science event for 2016, Survey + Cleanup + BBQ at Tai Tam!
WWF’s Coastal Watch programme is HK’s first large-scale citizen science survey providing the EPD/AFCD data on marine debris and biodiversity after the 2012 plastic pellet crisis. To obtain accurate picture of the marine litter problem around Hong Kong,1000+ people surveyed 34 coastal areas throughout HK in 2014-15. This site action focuses on the protected mangrove area in Tai Tam led by Team Scientist Maegen with sustainability experts from Green Council HK. It’s the fourth and final survey of the two-year project and results will be released at the end of 2016.
