Education and Publicity
Marine Parks Ambassador Scheme aims to provide a medium for the public to understand the concept of marine conservation and the functions of marine parks. Through the activities, participants will learn the importance of marine conservation and are willing to contribute to the marine conservation works and support our management on marine parks.
The first batch of marine parks in Hong Kong were designated in 1996. This laid a new milestone of marine conservation in Hong Kong. By the end of 2016, there were 5 marine parks in Hong Kong.

Other training courses
This is an interactive part which allows the ambassadors to put what they learn from the training in practice. Ambassadors could gain impressive experience from different marine conservation works like briefing, implementation and post-activities evaluation. Tentatively, the service programmes include marine parks and non-marine parks beach cleanup, marine conservation promotion programmes, marine parks visitors survey and ecotour guidance services. More other services will be planned and developed for the ambassador in future.
To encourage ambassadors to join more marine conservation programmes and appreciate their effort on promotion of marine conservation, awards will be given to ambassadors who achieve certain levels of performance. A 'Marine Parks Ambassador' T-shirt will be given to successful marine parks ambassador scheme candidates.
