Hong Kong, 23 April 2015 - Over 900 Hong Kong students along with teachers and volunteers formed a giant fish in honour of Kids Ocean Day today, sending a global message to stop consuming reef fish in order to protect the Earth’s coral reefs. The image was accompanied by chopsticks and the words “Where’s My Reef,” and in Chinese characters “節制” which means “refrain.” Based on an original drawing by Giselle Li, a student from Victoria Shanghai Academy in Hong Kong, the image was brought to life on the beach by international aerial artist John Quigley.
