Immaculate Heart of Mary College

About IHMC HSC Team

Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK) has been collaborating with City University of Hong Kong (CityU) to launch the “Juvenile Horseshoe Crab Rearing Programme” since 2009. With the help of specialists from CityU throughout the programme, our school Juvenile Horseshoe Crab Rearing team (HSC Team) is going to rear horseshoe crabs, observe and monitor the growth of juveniles and release them to the wild after six months.

The programme is dedicated to participating in effective conservation education to young generations, inspiring them to engage in conservation actions, especially horseshoe crab conservation as the programme aims to educate students from the day of rearing to the day of release. Apart from this, the team will organise different kinds of promotional events in pursuit of more widespread messages of horseshoe crab conservation.
