    Media coverage:

    BDR interviewed for the radio show Hong Kong Today. The topic was the effects of ocean acidification on marine biodiversity, particularly the marine systems of Hong Kong.

    Covered by three different Newspapers: Sing Tao Daily, Ta Kung Pao, and Wen Wei Po.
    All three articles were in Chinese with a combined readership of 482,000 people.
    The articles covered impacts of ocean acidification that are relevant to people of Hong Kong and southern China.
