Bond was born in rural area and he enjoyed all he has gained from the mother nature. When he grew up, he moved into city and found that the rural part of his hometown was gradually being swallowed by concrete. This scene is so heart breaking to Bond but he also believed that development and nature could coexist through environmental education. By devoting himself into environmental education, Bond wishes he could help connecting people to our nature. With this connection, he believed that people can gradually appreciate, cherish and protect our nature.

Bond starts chasing birds and butterflies when he was studying secondary school. When he came to university, he fell in love with amphibians and reptiles. After graduation, Bond has been involved in a global forestry research and spent most of his time studying plants in the forest for more than 3 years. With more than 10 years experiences on wildlife research and environmental education, Bond enjoys to share what he has experienced from the nature. Applying his knowledge acquired, Bond has been designed and coordinated several local wildlife learning courses and programmes. Apart from having knowledge on local flora and fauna, Bond is a qualified outbound tour escort and has led students to more 10 foreign places to explore the wildlife there. At the same time, Bond concerns about urban trees conservation issues. He is a certified arborist and has participated in a number of tree risk assessments and vegetation surveys.
