Helping in the Forest Study Camp was my most unforgettable experience in OWLHK. We made our own bait using rotten fruits and set up light trap to attract insects. After waiting for a while, Dark brand bush brown (Mycalesis mineus) and Common evening brown (Melanitis leda) came for the bait, and insects including stick bugs and scarab beetles were found on the light trap. I felt really satisfied as the participants enjoyed the process and our ‘guests’ also enjoyed the bait we made.

One of the most impressive things I learnt was how to put concepts of environmental education into practice. In order to let students learn about local forest and biodiversity, the team spent lots of time and effort in designing and organizing every activities. Different from old school rigid teaching, this can raise students’ understanding and awareness on the environment, and empower them to practice what they have learnt and teach others. To effectively implement and promote environmental education, we need education about, in, and for the environment which none of these can be omitted.

My most unforgettable experience throughout my internship period was participating in the ‘Exploring the Urban Ant Diversity’ programme. I had been helping in a laboratory of related scope. This programme allowed me to practice and share what I have learnt via the teaching material I prepared. Also, I acquired new knowledge, for example, foraging behaviors of different ant species, which could not be learnt inside laboratory. I enjoyed the whole process of brainstorming, preparation and implementation of this programme.

This internship allowed me to experience the whole process of environmental education from designing to implementing activities, and evaluate different activities in terms of strengths, weaknesses and effectiveness while focusing on both affection and rationality. This was very helpful to me to brainstorm and design activities by myself in the future. My most impressive experience was designing a board game with Hong Kong forest conservation as theme, which was produced and promoted successfully. When I saw players enjoying my board game while learning about ecology at the same time, I knew that applying for this internship was a right choice.
