Although I'm new here, there's a book project they may be interesting. I've copied the text of the flyer below. (Yes, I am currently interning with Project Kaisei, so if I sound like I'm advertising, I apologize.)

Hong Kong Marine Life Carnival 2009

Hong Kong Marine Life Carnival 2009 香港海洋生態嘉年華 2009

Hong Kong harbours an astonishingly high marine biodiversity. We have about one tenth of some 800 stony coral species in the world, and we have over 300 recorded reef fish species inhabiting our coral and rocky reefs. The on-going reef fish survey conducted by Eco-education & Resources Centre (ERC) has recorded nearly 200 species within Port Shelter alone. Despite this, our demand for seafood has affected local marine fishery resources.

In order to increase public understanding on reef fish diversity in Hong Kong and raise public awareness to sustainable use of marine resources, the Eco-education & Resources Centre is organizing the Hong Kong Marine Life Carnival 2009. The event includes guided exhibition board tour, guided snorkeling, booth games organized by various institutes and conservation groups, beach cleaning, origami day and mini concert. We wish to provide participants with a relaxing and interactive way to learn more about marine life and conservation in Hong Kong. Details of the event are as follows:

Date: 27 – 28 Jun, 4 – 5 Jul, 11 – 12 Jul 18 – 19 Jul (Sat and Sun); Time: 1100 – 1800; Venue: Sai Kung Pier (near the public swimming pool)
