Living seas Hong Kong

Living Seas Hong Kong is a diverse group of Hong Kong residents, who all share a love and concern for the underwater world.
Particular concerns: Decimation of Hong Kong’s marine life.Lack of a cohesive government policy or legislation that adequately protects marine life in Hong Kong.Destruction of marine habitats through reclamation projects, sewage/open drain discharge and the untenable practises of Hong Kong’s fishing industry.Hong Kong consumption of seafood is unsustainable.
