On 19 November, the AA took part in the annual International Coastal Cleanup Hong Kong initiated by Ocean Conservancy. Over 60 AA staff and their families and friends, together with the volunteers from the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council Tung Chung Integrated Services Centre collected 295 kg of debris from the shores of Shui Hau Wan in Southern Lantau. The data of the collected waste will be further analysed to identify the sources and devise long-term solutions to the problem of marine debris. Click here to know more about the event.
