Message from Selina So, Senior Community Education Officer, Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong.

Dear fellow students,

We are Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong. We are excited to introduce you
with the University Student Sponsorship Programme (USSP) after 3 years' pandemic time!
USSP Established in 2004, funded by OPCFHK, the USSP sent students from different
universities to various destinations and provided the opportunities to them to take part in
the scientific research projects. Students will gain valuable experiences of working alongside
conservation professionals which gave them insight to take up careers in conservation
through real-life encounters.

You can also become one of our USSPers. If you wish to know more about the programme,
you are welcomed to join us the briefing session. Details are in the poster. See you there!

Best Regards,
Selina So
Senior Community Education Officer
