Marine park for dolphins suggested:Airport Authority: building 3rd runway affects their habitat2014.06.30
The Hong Kong Dolphin Conservation Society (香港海豚保育學會) is proposing a marine park in western Lantau.
Last week, the Airport Authority(機場管理局) released its report on the study of how building a third runway will affect the environment.
According to the report, the runway would have some effects on the Chinese white dolphins’ habitats.
It also proposed a new marine park of about 2,400 hectares in the north. It will be more than 20 times larger than Ocean Park (海洋公園). The marine park will be completed in 2023,after the runway is built.
But the Authority also said there will be a potential loss of 650 hectares of open sea due to the project.
