Getting the waste off our beach

The AA Staff Club rallied to clean up marine debris at the annual International Coastal Clean-up event initiated by Ocean Conservancy and organised by the Green Council in Hong Kong. On 17 November 2018, 71 AA staff, their families and friends rolled up their sleeves and collected 425 kg of trash along the coastline at Shui Hau Wan, South Lantau. Their collective effort surpassed the haul in the same event in 2017 by more than 113 kg. The shallow sandy bay is an area of high ecological value as a habitat for hermit crabs and clams as well as nursery grounds for horseshoe crabs.
