Ocean Park’s 'Sichuan Week’

To celebrate the first-ever birth of a golden snub-nosed monkey baby in Hong Kong and to introduce the rich natural heritage of the lush Sichuan natural habitat; Ocean Park and Ocean Park Conservation Foundation is working with the Forestry Department of Sichuan Province to bring a ‘Sichuan Week’ event to Ocean Park. The ‘Sichuan Week’ will be kicked off in the Ocean Park conservation day on 20th May, 2017, following by the golden snub-nosed monkey baby naming activity, ‘Sichuan week’ exhibition and a series of in park F&B and retail offers to promote animal conservation and the importance of biodiversity.

Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey Baby Naming Activity

Ocean Park was excited to announce the first-ever birth of a male golden snub-nosed monkey baby in Hong Kong on 17th April, the offspring of male golden monkey Qi Qi and female Le Le who arrived at Ocean Park from Chengdu Zoo in 2015 and 2012 respectively. The newborn’s condition is stable and has been observed to be nursing well.

It is heartening to witness such a great result, considering Qi Qi just left Chengdu Zoo for Ocean Park less than two years ago, and Le Le only recently achieved maturity and this is her first birth. It is also the Park’s first time facilitating the breeding of this species. Sichuan golden snub-nosed monkeys are listed as an endangered species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red list of threatened species and there are currently about 15,000 Sichuan golden snub-nosed monkeys left in the wild throughout the species’ range in West-Central China.

From 20th May to 5th June, Ocean Park is holding a golden snub-nosed monkey baby naming activity to find names for the golden snub-nosed monkey baby. Please visit the naming activity webpage for details.

      The 22nd Ocean Park Conservation Day

      As part of their efforts to promote biodiversity and wildlife conservation, Ocean Park and Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK) are holding their annual event, Ocean Park Conservation Day on 20th-21st May, 2017. The day promises to offer a diverse range of engaging and interactive experiences, including a new orienteering game called the ‘Nature Tracking Mission’ and a variety of edutainment game booths at the Park. This year’s campaign will echo OPCFHK’s theme of the year to encourage cutting down on disposable plastics in our daily life, illustrating how little steps every day can help protect the precious biodiversity of the planet. Like previous years, Ocean Park will donate the entire admission revenue from the Conservation Day on 20th May to OPCFHK in support of wildlife conservation in Asia.
