The Lantau Conservation Fund opened for application today to provide financial support for eligible organisations to implement conservation and related projects in Lantau.

The Chief Executive announced in her 2018 Policy Address that a $1 billion fund would be set up to promote and support conservation of Lantau, with $500 million dedicated to providing financial support to non-governmental organisations, charities, post-secondary institutions and more.

The fund recipients should collaborate with local communities and landowners and carry out three streams of conservation and related projects, namely conservation management agreement, research and education and engagement.

Conservation management agreement projects will close for application on March 31, 2021, while the application deadline for research projects and education and engagement projects is February 26, 2021.

Call the Lantau Conservation Fund Secretariat at 2153 2739 or email for details.
