WWF Summer School 2018

25 May


Summer school is a fun and exciting way to learn about our city’s unique ecosystems. Held in July and August, planned nature activities are for groups aged 6-8 and 9-11. With classmates and friends, the groups discover the richness of the natural world, the importance of conserving it and the effects of our daily lifestyle choices on these environments. The WWF’s curriculum based activities are run by their educators at their three centres in Mai Po Nature Reserve, Hoi Ha Wan Marine Life Centre and Island House Conservation Studies Centre, Tai Po.
