Profile

"Live Nature" is a social enterprise operated Sai Kung District Community Centre. As early as in 2008, the Centre has been subsidized by the Sai Kung District Council to operate a "Eco-tour Guide Training Scheme" which recruited and trained a group of conservationist and nature lovers in Sai Kung for tour guide techniques. After completion of the scheme, these docent guides assisted in the setting up of "Live Nature", with the support of Sai Kung District Community Centre. By 2012, the Centre has been sponsored by a seed scheme under the "Enhancing Self-Reliance Through District Partnership Programme" by the Home Affairs Department. Under such scheme, "Live Nature" operated as a social enterprise and with a base in Sai Kung, keep on exploring the wonders of ecological and natural attractions to be brought forward by "experiential" Eco-tours and activities.
