WWF Leader
Saturday, 24 Feb 2024
12.30 pm - 6.30 pm
Mai Po
The RGS-HK is pleased to offer a guided tour to the Mai Po Marshes, a large wetland nature reserve managed by WWF, located in the North-west New Territories. Mai Po is an internationally significant wetland, which is listed by the Ramsar Convention, and supports globally-important numbers of wetland birds, which chiefly arrive in winter and during the spring and autumn migrations.

Every year, thousands of migratory birds visit and stay at Mai Po and the Deep Bay area, before flying North for breeding.  This guided tour has been organised to show Members this fascinating scene. 

An experienced guide conducts the tour, to appreciate the mangrove groves and as well as other wildlife on Deep Bay.  The group then has a chance to look closely at hundreds of thousands of migratory birds.  The trip includes a visit to the tower hide, a walk along the fishponds, and a visit to the mudflats and the largest mangrove forest in Hong Kong.

Leave Central by coach at 12:30pm and return to Central by 6:30pm
