Ocean Park's animal ambassadors urge everyone to reduce plastic use

share on

In a momentous move to celebrate Earth Day with this year’s theme, Planet vs Plastic, and aligning with the latest regulations set forth by the government, Ocean Park has invited its animal ambassadors to empower everyone to reduce plastic consumption. 

The animal ambassadors include giant pandas, red pandas, meerkats, penguins, spotted seals and Beale's eyed turtles, which immerse themselves in championing this important cause. These charismatic creatures have taken centre stage to delight the public with their irresistible charm, inspiring them to make a positive impact. 

On the other hand, Ocean Park and Water World will cease providing single-use plastic products in all restaurants and food kiosks while adopting eco-friendly sugar cane straws and natural bamboo cutlery starting today (22 April 2024).  

As part of the Earth Day celebration, Ocean Park invites children to participate in special workshops held at North Pole Encounter in the upper park, where they can enjoy colouring fun and learn about the urgent need to protect our planet's invaluable resources.  

Visitors may also embark on an extraordinary journey at Ocean Park to immerse themselves in the nature, where they can meet the newest animal ambassador Passion, the non-native crocodile rescued in Hong Kong's rural area, and learn about the importance of safeguarding local biodiversity.  

Visitors may also continue the journey at Dive into Local Diversity to explore the local freshwater habitats.  

By engaging visitors through the adorable animal ambassadors and promoting mindful practices, Ocean Park aims to inspire a collective effort towards a cleaner and greener future.

Ocean Park has long been at the forefront of advocating for conservation and fostering a deep connection between people and nature. Since the establishment of its Conservation Alliance in 2023, Ocean Park has provided an interactive platform for the community to engage in conservation efforts.  

Among its flagship initiatives, the territory-wide SGREEN campaign focuses on waste reduction, recycling, and upcycling, empowering schools and students to take an active role in building a sustainable future. 

Ocean Park Conservation Foundation Hong Kong, a long-standing advocate for saving the oceans and marine life from the threats of single-use plastic, has spearheaded impactful campaigns, such as the No Straw Campaign and No Plastic Week, rallying the community to reduce single-use plastic in their daily lives. 

Ocean Park has also made significant moves in reducing plastic waste, starting in 2010 by discontinuing distribution of straws unless requested, followed by the replacement of plastic straws with biodegradable potato starch straws in 2021.
