Voices for the Planet online wildlife art competition has started and runs through 22 May. This year’s theme is “Whispering Reefs” – beautiful coral reefs and the sea creatures living among them. Students can participate by drawing, writing, singing, or taking photos or videos. The challenge is open to kindergarten to secondary school students free of charge.

Share the competition with your school, a teacher, another parent, or a student. Become part of the voices for the wild with the fun free art competition.

Protecting Hong Kong’s future

Did you know Hong Kong waters have a higher coral diversity than the Caribbean Sea? About 40% of Hong Kong’s total land area is designated as country parks, and although Hong Kong’s marine area is only ~0.03 % of that of China, the number of marine species recorded in Hong Kong accounts for ~26 % of the total recorded in all of China.

What wonderful nature we’re enjoying and surrounded by here in Hong Kong. It’s a true treasure worth protecting so our children can live in a world full of green mountains and rich wildlife.

How to get involved

When: February 14 to May 22, 2023
Theme for the fun free art competition: Whispering Reef
Coral reefs provide an important ecosystem for life underwater, protect coastal areas by reducing the power of waves hitting the coast, and provide a crucial source of income for millions of people. Children will be able to learn about the different coral reefs and sea creatures by creating wildlife art with LumiVoice guidelines while developing love and compassion towards these wonderful creatures.
