Certainly, unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you would have become aware of the conservation and environmental issues that face us all.
Concerned people and groups across the world, have been working hard to raise awareness, educate us all and create solutions.
There are several groups and individuals based on Lantau who are leading the charge to protect our local environment, be that the rivers, mountains, wetlands or the sea.
So, over the next few months Lantau Network is aiming to highlight these commendable people and give you the opportunity to see if it’s something that you might want to support and help.
