Promoting endangered wildlife conservation with Citywalk

Promoting endangered wildlife conservation with Citywalk

Following on the success of last year collaboration on marine conservation, OPCFHK joined hand with Citywalk again to promote wildlife conservation and increase public awareness this summer through the “Never Give Up – World Olympics” Programme from 15 July to 2 September. 

 
Kick off the “Never Give Up – World Olympics” at the opening ceremony on 15 July 2011 with OPCFHK Deputy Director Mr. Timothy Ng,  renowned radio DJ Mr. Francis Mak and other special guests including celebrity Mr. Kenneth Ma.  After introducing the athletes of the animal world, Timothy also shared how the different components of this programme can reach out the public to promote wildlife conservation. 


It requires fortitude and determination to win a match and survive. An exhibition was held to showcase how endangered species use their special survival skills to face their challenges in the wild. Through presenting how remarkable and valuable they are, we hope to inspire the public to conserve wildlife more! 


To take the initiative to support OPCFHK’s wildlife conservation efforts, visitors could donate through the giant panda Octopus donation kiosk located at Citywalk event hall!


160 students and renowned radio DJ Mr. Francis Mak joined the Animal Conservation Guided Tour at Ocean Park. Through visiting the giant pandas from mountain, pygmy marmosets from rainforest and penguins from polar, the students were connected to understand the threats different species are facing in their distinct habitats and the importance of protecting them. 


The students were busy capturing the special moves of the different animals and collecting information for the “Creative Snap Shot Contest”, which required them to create an art piece to present the importance of wildlife conservation in an innovative way.
