Do you know what Hong Kong Reef Check is?
In collaboration with the Reef Check Foundation, AFCD has coordinated annual survey of corals in Hong Kong since 2000. Hong Kong Reef Check is part of the global programme to promote sustainable management of coral reefs. Reef Check serves 2 major functions:
To raise public awareness about the value of coral reefs, the threats to their health and the solutions to these problems
To obtain data on coral reef status in order to allow them to be managed on local and regional scales
AFCD will continue to organize Hong Kong Reef Check in future so that useful data on coral distribution and trends of abundance can be obtained for sound and adaptive management.
