Over 1,000 Hong Kong school children, teachers and volunteers form a massive kid-designed dolphin to say in two languages “Protect” in English, and Ocean in Chinese (海洋), communicating their desires for a clean and thriving sea. Kids Ocean Day Hong Kong is organized by Ocean Recovery Alliance, Bonza Pie and the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, as well as the Malibu Foundation and Spectral Q from Los Angeles. The children are alerting the world about their appreciation of the ocean and the need to protect it. The event links the Hong Kong and California Kids Ocean Day projects, run by the Malibu Foundation for the past 20 years, across the Pacific Ocean, and marks the first beachhead in Asia which brings our young, future ocean ambassadors together to deliver a global message about ocean protection.
