Description

Since its expansion in 2005, the Ocean Park Conservation Foundation Hong Kong (OPCFHK) has allocated over $98.62 million to fund 536 research projects on cetaceans, giant pandas and many other species. The two themes for 2020/21 include marine conservation and combating illegal trade of threatened species. We also participate in the conservation and research of local freshwater turtles. Whilst continuing the operation of the Cetacean Stranding Response Team in Hong Kong since 2006, the Foundation has extended the Stranding Response Programme to threatened species of sharks and rays in 2016. In 2017, OPCFHK also funded a long term project on multi-species study evaluating the impacts of habitat fragmentation and quality on ranging patterns of threatened wildlife in the Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Giant panda conservation efforts were extended from infrastructure rebuilding after earthquake to a three-year donation commitment to support scientific research, capacity building, as well as education projects being carried out in Sanjiang field station under Sichuan Wolong National Nature Reserve.
