Our turtle is a newborn baby turtle. In the model, it has four parts : sand, egg, turtle body and turtle shell. We use different colors to show different parts. As you can see there are some white cans on the turtle's hand and head, it means the baby turtle just born from the turtle's egg.  We hope that the public would understand Hong Kong has a unique natural ecology through small turtles and arouse public awareness of environmental protection.  
Probably unknown to the younger generations, Hong Kong was once upon a time where sea turtles regularly came to breed. Places like Sham Wan in Lamma Island, and even Shau Kei Wan in Hong Kong Island were visited by them. Because of water pollution and changes in the coastline, it is now a rare scene for sea turtle to lay eggs in Hong Kong. Our sculpture "Sea Turtle" is to share our hope with the public that together, we can improve Hong Kong's environment, and have sea turtles "MADE IN HONG KONG" once again. 

本设计是一只刚破蛋而出的小海龟在模型中可分为四部分:沙、蛋、龟的身体及龟壳。我们使用了不同颜色的罐头来表达模型中的不同部分。在海龟的头和掌上有数罐白色罐头,是代表小海龟刚破蛋而出,还有碎裂的蛋壳依附在身上。希望透过小海龟令市民大众明白香港独有的自然生态,唤起大众的环保意识,珍惜和保护大自然。
海龟在香港产卵可能对年轻一代来说是闻所未闻,但很多年前海龟曾经常来产卵。由南丫岛深湾,甚至香港岛的筲箕湾也曾发现他们的影踪。由于水质污染和海岸线的​​变化,海龟在香港产卵现在却成为难得的画面。我们的雕塑“海龟”,就是跟公众分享我们的希望,我们可以改善香港的环境,再次令海龟“MADE IN HONG KONG“。
