Deer in the Box Exhibition

"Deer in the Box" Exhibition


     An intriguing title. A deer goes astray and gets lost in Hong Kong. Not able to roam wild and free in its natural habitat, it learns about the climate change in Hong Kong, and finds out that under global warming, an increase of temperature of steps of one degree Celsius could bring progressively more severe impacts, and would lead us to a world resembling the Cretaceous period for a 6-degree warming.

     This exhibition is produced in association with the Hong Kong Observatory by the School of Journalism and Communication of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, with the National Geographic Channel as a co-organizer. The exhibition aims to remind us to take care of our fragile environment. The Director of the Observatory, Mr C Y Lam, is one of the key contributors to the creative conception of the exhibition. Mr Lam's philosophy of "deriving happiness from nature" is also part of the exhibition. The exhibition will be open to the public to July 2009.
