When Art Meets Conservation: The New Sloth and Friends Studio is Now Open in Ocean Park


Get ready for a new adventure at the Sloth and Friends Studio in Ocean Park. This exciting new animal habitat features an amusing series of world-renowned masterpieces reinvented in animal faces using AI technology. Discover the importance of conservation efforts and learn about The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species established by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The Studio will give visitors a better understanding on how to reverse the extinction trend and save biodiversity.
“Ocean Park has always been committed to promoting conservation. With the new Sloth and Friends Studio, we have incorporated the concept of an art gallery, along with AI technology, to showcase the precious species listed in the Red List of Threatened Species to visitors. We hope that everyone can help reverse extinction trends and prevent wildlife losses at the appropriate time. A sustainable lifestyle would help both humans and other animals to survive into the future,” said Ivan Wong, Chief Executive of Ocean Park Corporation.  

The attraction includes a display corridor featuring AI drawings of animals like the extinct western black rhinoceros, the critically endangered blue-crowned laughingthrush, and many more. Visitors can also discover Ocean Park's commitment to conservation and the valuable work carried out by its professional animal team at the new exhibition corner. Learn about the team’s efforts in breeding, rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing local wildlife, as well as supporting investigations into cases of marine life stranding in the surrounding waters.
