Our Project

"ECF Embrace Blue Lantau" is an Environmental Education and Community Action Project organized by Department of Ocean Science of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with the funding from the Environment and Conservation Fund and Environmental Campaign Committee since July 2019. Through a series of environmental education activities such as roving exhibition, guided tours and workshops, the project aims to

 

  • raise public awareness of nature conservation and coastal protection in Lantau

  • promote Lantau’s coastal areas with high ecological values through marine eco-path

  • appreciate charismatic fauna and flora in Lantau

  • encourage sustainable use of natural resources and recreational activities

Project Objectives

Since the South Lantau consists of various coastal habitats which serve high biodiversity and ecological functions, this project aims to

  1. Promote the conservation initiatives set out in the Sustainable Lantau Blueprint

  2. Raise public awareness of nature conservation and coastal protection

  3. Promote coastal areas with high ecological value (e.g. Shui Hau, Tung Chung Bay and Tai O) and their importance

  4. Arouse public awareness on the impact of human activities on coastal habitats and the associated fauna and flora, such as clam digging activities and littering

  5. Encourage sustainable use of natural resources and environmentally recreational activities to the public
