About this Event

This is an advanced program designed for older students to investigate the impact on our local marine ecosystems. Each day they will embark on a voyage to different ecosystems in Hong Kong and use oceanographic equipment to take biological samples and water parameters. Back in the lab, they will learn about ocean chemistry, animal biology, invasive species and perform dissections. scholars will use scientific tools including water analysis kits, quadrats and microscopes to determine the magnitude of ecological disturbance.

Take an ocean exhibition to sai kung exploring the ecology and geology of the area while practising sailing on a classic 50-foot wooden ketch that serves as The Harbour School’s "outdoor classroom".

Dates: Week 1* (29 June - 3 July)

About the F.I.S.H Course Leaders: Sarah Taylor runs the Marine Science Center at THS taking care of the animals, working with Hong Kong NGOs to further marine conservation and teaching marine sciences, ecology, and activism. She is from a beach town in North Carolina where she ran a marine science summer camp and worked with local schools. Her favorite sea animal is the cuttlefish because of their high intelligence and personality she's seen while diving.

Maxine Cutracci is the THS Marine Science Specialist. She takes care of animal husbandry and teaches marine biology classes. Before living in Hong Kong she worked as a Marine Biologist in the Maldives doing research on sea turtles and developing projects with a local school on the island. Her favorite marine animals are corals because they are so colorful and... they don't look like animals at all!
