The AquaMeridian Conservation and Education (ACE) Foundation is a registered Hong Kong-based non-profit organisation that aims to educate and engage the public – particularly in Hong Kong – about conservation and sustainability issues through creative and cross-cultural programs.
We envision Hong Kong as a steward for environmental protection in Asia.
Hong Kong, the “Fragrant Harbour”, is a city built on its relationship with the sea. Growing from a small fishing island to one of the busiest trading ports in the world, it has long been dependent on our local natural riches.
But as our population and demand for resources grew, we neglected our roles as caretakers of the planet, with overfishing, ocean acidification, and pollution happening in our own waters.
Furthermore, Hong Kong acts as a hub for a thriving wildlife trade, with ivory and shark fin being bought and sold openly and legally.
We believe that education is the key to a sustainable future for our planet.
With Hong Kong long having been a multicultural bridge between the East and the West, as well as the gateway to China, increasing awareness of environmental issues within the city can have a far-reaching impact in the rest of Asia.
ACE Foundation uses various channels and approaches to educate the Hong Kong public of the need to respect our natural environment and to protect the species with which we share the planet.
