A belated happy International Women's Day! I went to check out the new @taraexpeditions at Central Pier and got to explore the schooner dedicated to environmental research. One of the people I got to meet was Sarah, a molecular biology engineer whose speciality is in plankton research.
On this educational tour of the boat, I was reminded of the impact us humans have made to our mother earth, and the consequences it is suffering, such as coral bleaching. Some of you may know that I actually studied molecular environment biology in university, and the changes to our climate is an issue close to heart for me.
While the schooner is in Hong Kong for the week, it's open to public over the weekend. Hope you'll go have a look and be inspired by the hard work the Tara team has done!
Thanks to @buzzprhk for the invite to the event!
