“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” Tony Gilbert, Programme Director at The International SeaKeepers Society, used this oft-quoted saying to once again remind guests of the responsibility we hold towards our planet during the society’s 4th Asia Awards Dinner at ONE°15 Marina at Sentosa Cove. Co-hosted by Julian and Sandra Chang, the event was attended by the Ambassador of the Russian Federation, H.E. Andrey Tatarinov and his wife Natalia, and the Ambassador of Switzerland, H.E. Fabrice Filliez and his wife Ksenia. Marine biologist Achier Chung was awarded The SeaKeeper Of Malaysia Award for her research and conservation work with Reef Guardian while Gili Shark Conservation Project took home the 2019 Asia Achievement Award, in recognition of its efforts in increasing the level of protection for coral reefs and marine life surrounding the Gili Islands through research and education.
