The ASEAN Biodiversity Hero Award recognises the work of individuals who have contributed significantly to biodiversity conservation in their respective countries. This is the second edition of the Award since it was first introduced at the 50th anniversary of ASEAN in 2017.

Prof Chou has made significant contributions to marine research and is the founder of the Reef Ecology Lab and the Tropical Marine Science Institute at NUS.

In an interview with The Straits Times, Prof Chou recounted how he used to go snorkelling with his friends and fellow students from the then University of Singapore. “The water was so clear we could see so many different things”. This was in the late 1960s.
