Nature Conservation

(Hong Kong – September 10, 2020) Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) is pleased to announce the launch of its annual membership scheme “Be a Friend of Nature,” with opportunities for individual or family applicants to support the organisation’s nature conservation, holistic education and sustainable living programmes in Hong Kong and the region. Members will also enjoy an array of exclusive benefits that enhance their experience at KFBG.

Join Us to Transform Our Planet for the Better

KFBG plays an essential role in harmonising our relationship with the environment. Some important parts of our work are educating children towards a healthy friendship with nature, wild animal rescue and forest restoration.

The scheme comes at a pivotal time when there is growing awareness that the future of humanity is linked to the health of forests and wildlife in the wake of current public health conditions. The public’s subscription to the “Be a Friend of Nature - KFBG Membership Scheme” matters a lot to nature conservation in the region.

By becoming a member of KFBG, a portion of your annual membership fee (HK$200 for individuals or HK$750 for a family up to 4) will go into KFBG’s education and conservation works such as protecting endangered species of plants and animals from extinction; rescuing and healing injured wild animals; developing effective reforestation methodologies for global sharing; conservation programmes across South China and South East Asia; our sustainable living programmes which help people transition towards living a low-carbon lifestyle; and the holistic education programmes that aim to deepen the connection between people and nature.

Members privileges and entitlement

We will offer a full array of exclusive benefits* to members. Throughout the year, members are entitled to enjoy unlimited admission to KFBG, priority bookings and discounts for courses, exclusive events, member prices for Farm Shop purchases. These discounts are also extended to purchase and dining at the Green Hub, KFBG’s centre for community collaboration in promoting sustainable living and low carbon living located in the old Tai Po Police Station.

Our vision is a world in which people live sustainably with respect for each other and nature. Support us and be a Member now. You will be helping transform our world for the better.
