Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong
Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong is a conservation charitable trust which commits to advocating, facilitating and participating in effective conservation of Asian wildlife, with an emphasis on Chinese white dolphins and giant pandas as well as their habitats through partnerships, fundraising, research and education. It envisions a world where Asian wildlife remains biologically diverse under the stewardship of humans, corporations and governments.
Since the expansion in 2005, the Foundation has allocated over $49 million to fund over 370 research projects covering over 50 species including cetaceans, giant pandas, orangutans, shark whale, Yangtze finless porpoise, Asian elephant. The Foundation has organised inspirational education programmes to nurture secondary and tertiary students. A research reveals that over 50% alumni of a programme for university students are still working on a conservation related field or still studying conservation. As an independent charitable trust, we need your support to sustain these efforts.
