RECENTLY, Ocean Park opened the first research and education sea life centre in Asia: the Marine Life Stranding and Education Centre. It will rescue sea life that washes ashore, or study these organisms if rescue is not possible. Forty million Hong Kong dollars have already been invested in the centre.
The money came from a local bank charity and mostly went to a CT scanner and a digital X-ray machine. They can scan the bodies of sea animals. The machines can hold animals up to 250kg in weight, and can check if there are plastics or other rubbish inside the animals.
The veterinarian team explained that in the past, completing an X-ray of an animal could take up to an hour, but the new machine can do it in just two to three minutes. On top of that, the scan can then be sent to overseas experts digitally.
