Sea For Future - Booklet
June 8 is World Oceans Day. What better way to mark this day than by staging an exhibition celebrating Hong Kong’s rich marine life.

The Sea for Future exhibition aims to raise public awareness of marine conservation and highlight Hong Kong's marine biodiversity. The new exhibition also seeks to garner support for expanding the network of marine protected areas (MPA) that would cover important habitats and species, and ensure sustainable development and management of local fisheries operations.

Currently, 5% of Hong Kong waters are designated, or planned to be established, as MPAs by 2023, while fishing and vessels are banned from less than 0.01% of Hong Kong waters. The project seeks to have the protected areas cover 30% of Hong Kong’s waters by 2030.
