HKSFPoster[1]

Date – Thursday 21 April 2011
Time – 12:30 – 2:00pm
Venue –The Hong Kong Jockey Club Atrium, University of Science and Technology, Clearwater Bay, Kowloon

This year HKSF celebrated Earth Day early by organising a ‘Jigantic Jenga’ game, sponsored by the Humane Society International (HSI) and supported by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

The event, attended by local journalists, created quite a spectacle in the central Atrium. Each cardboard jenga block was decorated with an animal from the marine ecosystem, including corals, fish and, of course, sharks! Students from HKUST helped to build the blocks into one titanic tower – and when the shark blocks were removed, the tower spectacularly collapsed, symbolising the vital role that sharks play in maintaining the delicate balance of our marine ecosytems.

Jigantic Jenga was just one of the fun ways HKSF uses to encourage people to look at the serious issue of marine conservation but the potential collapse of our marine ecosystems is  certainly no game!
