In Remembrance of Professor Brian Morton

April 26, 2021

It is with deep sadness to share the news that Professor Brian Morton, the ex-Chair of the Foundation, passed away at his sleep peacefully in UK on March 28, 2021.

Professor Morton chaired the Board of Trustees of Ocean Park Conservation Foundation from 2001 until his retirement in 2003.  During his chairmanship, he had provided inspiration and insights for the development of the Foundation.

He was very passionate on marine conservation and kept writing books after retirement. He had nurtured several generations of marine biologists and conservationists in Hong Kong and some of them became professors or government officials.

Professor Morton’s funeral will take place today, April 26, 2021, at 10:00am UK Time.  The Trustee would like to take this opportunity to thank the late Professor Morton for his invaluable contribution to the Foundation during his tenure of services and express deepest condolences to his family.
