Hong Kong at night as we cross as the river by ferry, such a beautiful view!

Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park was an absolutely beautiful location to visit! A morning of learning about seafood sustainability (and how doomed our oceans are 😭), a glass-bottomed boat tour to see the corals, a lovely afternoon spent by this beach, and a little swim to top it off!

Such a sad sight seeing all of these beautiful birds chained to a post and up for sale, including a scarlet macaw and two blue-and-yellow macaws! It's a shame that we, as a species, feel the need to have our hands on every natural thing out there.

Mai Po Marshes Nature Reserve strangely sits between a long stretch of fishing ponds and the very large and populated Shenzhen, requiring constant management to ensure it remains protected and a suitable environment for the mass amounts of migratory birds who frequent there, all the adorable little crabs living in the mangroves and the many many many mudskippers we saw out in the marshes.

The Yuen Po Street Bird Garden was both a shock to see and such a fascinating insight into the bird-keeping and Buddhist release traditions. So many of the birds were kept in small cages, either alone or cramped together, and many exhibited behaviours that were a sure sign of stress and poor well-being.

Starfish bay was a beautiful place to see, with one side looking out to the water and mountains, and the other side full of towering skyscrapers, a very real example of human encroachment on an otherwise natural environment.

Such a bizarre experience walking along Sai Kung and seeing the mass amounts of live fish and crustaceans, including some species you'd never think to see (so many cuttlefish, mantis shrimp and even a horseshoe crab in one restaurant!). It really does just highlight how imperative it is to take into consideration the sustainability of the seafood you consume, especially in places like Hong Kong where seafood is such a large part of the diet.

Hong Kong was an absolutely beautiful place and I feel so lucky to have been taken here for a field trip! All I want right now is to be back there without a care in the world instead of weighed down with work here in the rainy UK! πŸ˜…

Very much looking forward to escaping to Hong Kong after three incredibly stressful months dealing with stats and my research project 🌏

First set of plaque assays were indeed a success! Finally starting to actually understand what I'm doing in the lab! πŸ˜…

Snuck away from work in the lab to take some classic graduation photos with these beauties! Thank you for an incredible three years here and I absolutely cannot wait to see what amazing things you'll go on to do in the future πŸ’›
