Maipo Marshes, A Nature Reserve in Hong Kong

Located on the northwestern corner of Hong Kong, the Deep Bay wetland complex is among Asias finest locations for wetland biodiversity. The complex spans some 2,700 hectares and is home to diverse habitats supporting a wide range of species, and is a renowned haven for migratory birds. Since 1983, WWF-Hong Kong has actively managed the Mai Po Nature Reserve (a 380 hectare area in Deep Bay), continuously developing research and education facilities while carrying out extensive conservation work to maintain the wetlands. With such a unique and biologically diverse wetland flora and fauna living across six types of wetland including fishponds, gei wai, mudflats, mangroves, reedbed and freshwater ponds, WWFs management of Mai Po makes every effort to enhance the potential of this important and outstanding ecological sanctuary. As a Nature Reserve, Mai Po is internationally renowned for supporting vast numbers of migratory waterbirds every year, particularly in mid-winter when around 60,000 are present in Deep Bay. The Reserve is also home to an amazing diversity of other wildlife, offering spectacles in all seasons of the year.
