The Conservancy Association (Chinese: 長春社) is a Hong Kong non-governmental organization founded in 1968.[1]

The organization focuses on the protection of the environment and the conservation of natural and cultural heritage. It also seeks to enhance the quality of life of both current and future generations, and to ensure that Hong Kong shoulders her regional and global environmental responsibilities. The organization advocates appropriate policies, monitors government action, promotes environmental education and takes a lead in community participation.[2][3]

Robert N. Rayne founded the Conservancy Association in Hong Kong in 1968, together with Prof. S. Y. Hu of Chinese University of Hong Kong,[1] Prof. Brian Lofts of the University of Hong Kong, Father H. Naylor of Kowloon Wah Yang College, Mr. John H. Pain and others. He became the chairman of the Conservancy Association in 1973 and participated in the Anti-Night Plane Campaign in Hong Kong in the early 1970s.
