As a keen hiker, I have been lucky to have the beautiful country parks and beaches in Clearwater Bay on my doorstep for many years. Also, growing up in England with easy access to the woods and countryside, embedded in me a firm passion for nature from a young age. Over the last few years, I have worked as a ski instructor in Austria and experienced the effects of climate change first-hand, this has fuelled my dedication to conservation. I am now committed to reducing our adverse impact on the environment, so I am very much enjoying volunteering with EcoDrive Hong Kong.
