I am taking part in Moontrekktr 2019 to raise funds for The Nature Conservancy.
The world’s temperature is rising, the climate is changing, and the occurrence of extreme weather events is increasing. Across Asia Pacific, communities are facing increased risks of rising sea levels and unprecedented storms. Globally, experts predict that one-fourth of the planet’s current species will be headed for extinction by 2050 if the warming trend continues at its current rate. Today, dozens of species are going extinct every single day. This problem is human-caused. This problem is also human-solvable.
For the past 10 years, the annual Barclays Moontrekker has been a major sponsor of TNC. Funds raised will go towards the amazing work that TNC does in 72 countries in the areas of slowing down climate change, freshwater conservation, land preservation, ocean rejuvenation, fighting pollution in cities, and wildlife conservation.
This year's Moontrekker takes place between 18-19 October 2019.
Overnight hike on Lantau Island, starting from Mui Wo and ending at Cheung Sha Beach, 30km in total.
What's in it for you
Good karma, cleaner air, more predictable weather, more fluffy animals, tax deductible for HK tax payers (not to be taken as tax advice).
