2022 / 2023 Senior Secondary Biology Field Trip

Other Conventional Habitat-Focused Topics

8. Study of mangrove ecosystem

Mangrove stands is one of the most well-known coastal habitats. Students can learn how to identify different true mangroves and mangrove associates as well as diversified animals living in the inter-tidal zone. Students can also measure various abiotic factors of the habitat. By observing the distribution and adaptive features of the animals and plants, students could better understand the relationships between the physical environment and living organisms.

Online Learning Platform for Biology Field Study


HKNEAC opens an online learning platform account for teachers and students participating in the course. Before participating in the course, students may log in to the platform to learn more about relevant knowledge, concepts, and skills, and complete the quizzes. The platform will automatically record the learning progress and scores of each student so that teachers can keep track of the learning situation of each student.


Depending on the needs of teachers and students, teachers participating in the courses may choose from the following learning methods:

  • Watch the video clips and collect data (students learn by themselves without the restriction of time and space)
  • ZOOM live-streaming (collecting data during the field trip, performing statistical analysis, or conducting report review as scheduled)
  • Face to Face Courses (Full Day Course outside HKNEAC or 1~3-day field trip off campus)
