In 2019, HKSF spoke to over 11,000 students at over 45 schools and successfully expanded their Shark Ambassador Program to further shark conservation awareness. Despite the Covid-19 challenges of 2020, 2021 is proving to be a more hopeful and positive year with over 6,700 students participating in our shark education talks as of June.

JOIN THE SHARK AMBASSADOR EDUCATION PROGRAM HERE – The Shark Ambassador education program is a student-driven initiative that enables motivated students here in Hong Kong to become a vital part of the shark conservation movement. Not only do Ambassadors get the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference for sharks everywhere, they also are able to develop their leadership, communication, and presentation abilities in a formal manner that looks great on a university application or even on a CV. The Shark Ambassador Program puts the students in charge, building their leadership capacity and responsibility while creating real change.

If you are interested in sponsoring HKSF’s Shark Ambassador education program or having HKSF come out to speak to your school about shark and ocean conservation, please reach out to andrea@hksharkfoundation.org. Thank you!
