Founded by artist, celebrity and avid marine conservationist, Ms. Sharon Kwok in 2013, AquaMeridian Conservation and Education (AquaMeridian) is a registered Hong Kong-based non-profit organization that aims to educate and engage the public – particularly in Hong Kong – about wildlife conservation and sustainability issues through creative and cross-cultural programs.
Hong Kong acts as a hub for a thriving wildlife trade, with numerous endangered wildlife products such as ivory and shark fin being bought and sold openly and legally. With Hong Kong long having been a multicultural bridge between the East and the West, as well as the gateway to China, increasing awareness of environmental issues within the city can have a far-reaching impact on the rest of Asia. We believe that education is the key to a sustainable future for our planet.
In 2018, AquaMeridian has become an official member of IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).
AquaMeridian Conservation & Education is a non-profit organisation registered in Hong Kong. It was founded by Sharon Kwok and Peter Jackson in March 2013.
Sharon Kwok is a half-Chinese, half-American conservationist who has worked in Hong Kong’s public broadcasting and film industry since 1987.
