Field trip - Hoi Ha Marine Life Centre
30 October 2014
Some students spent a fun-filled afternoon at Hoi Ha Marine Life Centre in Sai Kung, an education centre for marine biodiversity and conservation. Wading knee-deep in the waters in their canvas shoes, students closely observed the coastal habitats and marine life. Hoi Ha is well known for its lush coral communities where over 60 types of hard coral and 120 species of coral fish can be found. Centennial College students had the rare chance to observe these from up-close in a specially-designed glass-bottomed boat. All kinds of local marine life were spotted, from jellyfish, hermit crabs and freshwater snails to sea cucumbers and sea urchins. Being surrounded by diverse marine life is perhaps the best way to learn about conservation!
