Along the coastline of Pearl River Estuary, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao enjoy the prosperous marine environment and rich resources of the Greater Bay Area. Our beautiful Bay Area is home to a great variety of marine species. Among them are energetic Chinese white dolphins, tender green sea turtles, gorgeous corals, and various fishes, and all of them are our familiar friends. They share the ocean with us and play a vital role in sustaining the marine ecosystem and establishing its ecological balance.

“The Greater Bay Area, Our Elegant Home – Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Marine Life Drawing Competition 2018” aims at encouraging students, teenagers and members of the public to present the colours and shapes of marine life through art, with a view to promoting public awareness of conservation of marine life and environment.
