Outdoor Wildlife Learning Hong Kong (OWLHK) is a professional environmental education organization established in 2016 and became a registered charity in Hong Kong (IR file no.:91/16831). We aim at promoting conservation and environmental education in Hong Kong through outdoor education.

Owls have long been viewed as a symbol of wisdom and intelligence in various ancient cultures, and at the same time they are a part of nature.

Dr. Kim-Pong Tam (Associate Professor in the Division of Social Science at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) is the Main Collaborator of this Project. Dr. Tam is passionate about making sure humans and the planet are doing well. He's always thinking about how he can help as a social scientist. Back in the early 2010s, he decided to focus all his attention on studying how humans behave in relation to the environment. He looks at things like how people interact with nature, how they can be more eco-friendly, what they think and feel about climate change, what can be done to mobilize them to support climate policies and technology.
