Join us for a biodiversity excursion in Hoi ha in our glass-bottomed boat!

About this Event

We’ll visit Hoi Ha Wan, one of the first Marine Parks in Hong Kong, with an expert guide accompanying us to introduce the fauna and flora of the area.

With an AFCD-estimated 45,000 visitors in 2015, Hoi Ha Wan is Hong Kong’s most accessible Marine Park and is a popular destination for day trippers. Watch out for monkeys in the trees, cows on the road, and a stunning view over Long Harbour as the road drops down from Pak Tam Au. With a wealth of corals, including 64 of the 84 species of stony corals found in Hong Kong, Hoi Ha Wan has been a Site of Special Scientific Interest since 1986 and was gazetted as a Marine Park in 1996.

We will explore the diversity of marine life in the mangrove and sandy shore habitats at HHW. Our expert guide will be teaching animal classification and how to identify marine invertebrates. We’ll learn about the global threats facing our oceans and glimpse some of Hong Kong’s marine treasures aboard the World Wide Fund glass-bottom boat to observe coral inside the Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park

We’ll also explore the lime kiln in Hoi Ha Village and learn about calcium carbonate and baking soda. We’ll be doing an experiment where students will combine vinegar and baking soda in a water bottle to create a chemical reaction that inflates a balloon!

Learning outcomes

• Students will learn how to use iNaturalist and concepts of citizen science

• Students will learn develop a simple classification system for grouping organisms.

• Students will identify marine invertebrates

• Students will be able to observe corals

• Students will learn about chemical reactions that creates an effervescence

我們將訪問 海下灣。海下灣是香港首批海洋公園之一,由專家導遊陪同,介紹保護區內的動植物。

漁護署估計2015年有45,000名訪客, 海下灣是香港最方便的海洋公園,也是一日游的熱門目的地。海下灣珊瑚豐富,包括香港發現的84種石珊瑚中的64種, 海下灣自1986年以來,一直是具有特殊科學意義的地點,1996年在憲報上刊登作為海洋公園。


我們還將探討 海下的石灰窰,做一個關於碳酸鈣和小蘇打的小實驗!

Our SDG / STEM Educational Excursions are a series of educational excursions in different parts of Hong Kong, combining an outdoor nature element together with a hands-on scientific learning components. Our excursions combines the objectives of SDG 4 Education with different SDG Elements, including SDG 11 Sustainable Cities, SDG 14 Life Below Water, SDG 15 Life on Land among others. All our STEM activities are students-friendly, with worksheets and quiz to enhance students learning. Our activities are suitable for students aged 6-15 and we welcome parents to join the activities.



我們的 SDG /STEM教育之旅是在香港不同地區的一系列教育之旅,將戶外自然元素與實踐科學學習元件相結合。 我們的遊覽將可持續發展目標 4教育的目標與不同的可持續發展目標要素相結合,包括可持續發展目標 11 可持續城市、可持續發展目標 14 水下生活、SDG 15 陸地生活等。 我們所有的STEM活動都是適合學生尋加的 ,並配合工作表和小測驗,以提高學生的學習成果。我們的活動適合6-15歲的學生,我們歡迎家長一同參加活動。
