Dr Billy Hau is a Principal Lecturer at the Division of Ecology and Biodiversity of the School of Biological Sciences, HKU. As a terrestrial ecologist and conservationist, he has made it his goal to cultivate new generations of dedicated, professional and pragmatic young conservationists for Hong Kong and the world. He believes the key is to nurture young students’ love of nature by providing them with immersive experiential learning opportunities in global biodiversity hotspots.
