Kids Ocean Day Hong Kong 2013 – Montage

More than 10,200 tons of shark fin were imported into Hong Kong in 2011, and this trade has led to the direct threat of many species of sharks from around the world. The message is clear: the time has come for the Hong Kong Government to enact laws to ban shark fin and related products from the territory.


Hong Kong 2013

1000 Hong Kong kids, teachers, and volunteers call for shark conservation by forming a giant shark with a severed fin saying ‘Save Me’ in Chinese (救我). The children then re-attached the fin, dotted the eye, ‘rekindling its spirit,’ and brought the shark back to life as the message of the 2nd annual ‘Kids Ocean Day’ Hong Kong organized by Ocean Recovery Alliance (a Hong Kong and California registered NGO), Malibu Foundation, and Spectral Q from Los Angeles).

The image is based on original drawings from two Hong Kong schoolchildren, one depicting a shark asking for a ‘ban on shark fin soup,’ and the other with a severed fin which said ‘save me’ while building respect for an endangered species that sadly, is universally feared. Their drawings were converted to a large scale aerial art image on the beach by international artist John Quigley, with help from all of the children, but with the fins from children at the Confucian Tai Shing Primary School, and Renaissance College primary students.

More than 1000 children on Repulse Bay Beach formed an aerial art spectacular as part of KIDS OCEAN DAY in the form of a shark with a detached fin. The children then moved in unison to re-attach the fin, symbolizing the improved health of the ocean environment.

Aerial Art Spectacle in Hong Kong

International artist John Quigley created the original sketch by the winner of the children’s drawing competition, in large scale on the beach. The event was preceded by a week of ocean talks at local school assemblies. KIDS OCEAN WEEK delivered an exciting environmental education program, which is designed to motivate children to care about beaches and the ocean ecosystem, and what they can do in their own neighborhoods to reduce the impact on our ocean environment.

KIDS OCEAN DAY aims to inspire children by:
Showing something that is loved (Beaches, oceans, animals, clean water)
Giving reasons for loving it (Source of air, food, and recreation)
Showing damage being done to it (Entangled animals, dirty neighborhoods and beaches)
Showing how it is being damaged. (People littering neighborhoods and showing storm drain connection)
Giving people something to do about it (Reduce litter, recycle, do a beach cleanup, do a neighborhood clean-up)

We swim in the ocean. We sail on the ocean. We fish in the ocean. We walk our dogs beside the ocean. The sea pulls more and more of us to live by the ocean, with two-thirds of the world’s population already living within 80km of the sea. Hong Kong’s biggest natural asset is the ocean, and with the Hong Kong Government’s recent fishing ban on trawling in all of Hong Kong waters, we now have an exceptional opportunity as a community to really bring our local ocean back to life. Already, positive results have been seen, showing proof that if we give the ocean a chance to heal itself, it is able to do so.

Do Not Litter

KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach School Assembly Program has been presented over 4,300 times to over 670,000 California school children since October 1991. About 122,000 kids have participated in the last 20 annual KIDS OCEAN DAY Adopt-A-Beach Clean-Ups.


Teachers show commitment in the classroom and now we need a commitment from you. KIDS OCEAN DAY is right there every year with the teachers, in the schools and on the sand cleaning up the beach. Keep KIDS OCEAN DAY going with our education program and events by making a donation today.

KOD is not so much a clean up as it is training of what plastic pollution looks like. It’s not just old tires and plastic milk jugs. What the kids learn is that the worst type of litter is the tiny pieces of eroded plastic and debris that usually goes unnoticed. Plastic from those red plastic cups, water bottles and Styrofoam, that go down the storm drains and break up into little fish food-sized morsels that our friends in the sea consume as a dietary staple, destroying our ecosystem. Fish eat the trash and we eat the fish.

KIDS OCEAN DAY gives the children a voice.

You must first identify the problem, then stop the damage.

This Is Our Chance

This is our chance and we need you. We teach kids and teachers why the beaches and oceans need to be clean. More than 670,000 students in California have participated in KIDS OCEAN DAY in the last 21 years. This year, KIDS OCEAN DAY is hoping to reach millions of children around the globe. The nonprofit will be releasing a new video campaign, produced by Earth Protect, highlighting the initiatives and impact this program has on not only the children, but also our oceans. The goal will be to raise enough funding so that the nonprofit can bring KIDS OCEAN DAY to countries around the globe.


You must first identify the problem, then stop the damage, followed by devising a course of action, finally, putting systems in place to prevent further degradation, all the while monitoring progress. As far as global sustainability is concerned, we’re only at the first step.

Michael Klubock and KIDS OCEAN DAY has created an educational program that starts in the classroom and ends on the beach, giving children a unique comprehensive understanding of the damage being done to our ecosystem, then giving them something to do about it. He is putting us on track for an eco-solution that extends into the future and covers the globe.

The KIDS OCEAN DAY message has been taken to 5 cities in Southern California, various cities in Mexico, and to the sands of Hong Kong, educating kids and inspiring them to action.

We know that we are all connected by the health of our oceans and to keep them clean and this program going we NEED YOU!

So please donate today and help our program survive.
