Baby Horseshoe Crab Fostering Programme

In 2015, Swire Properties became the first-ever corporation to team up with the Ocean Park Conservation Foundation Hong Kong for their “Baby Horseshoe Crab Fostering Programme”, in which 80 of Swire Properties’ staff members became foster parents to a group of adorable baby horseshoe crabs. As our tiny fossil friends travelled between our Hong Kong offices, the our staff members learnt all about this endangered species and how to care for them. After a few months, the horseshoe crabs were healthy enough to be returned to their natural habitat in the Ha Pak Nai mudflats near Yuen Long, where we held a “Wild Release Farewell” ceremony to say goodbye, complete with a team clean-up effort.
