Marine Life Drawing Competition 2016

Introduction

In the vast oceans live different marine species. Among them are energetic Chinese white dolphins, tender green sea turtles, gorgeous corals, and various fishes which share the ocean with us and play a vital role in maintaining balance in the marine ecosystem.

“Tomorrow’s Oceans-Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Marine Life Drawing Competition 2016” aims at encouraging students, youngsters and other public members to express their impression of marine life through art, with a view to promoting public awareness on conservation of marine life and habitats.
