Today, due to the generosity of contacts at WWF in Hong Kong, we received a tour of Mai Po Nature Reserve in Hong Kong’s New Territories. Mai Po is a large wetland reserve filled with very cool flora and fauna, and really is a bird lovers’ paradise. Mai Po is protected by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, and our visit was truly a treat. We saw mangroves, traditional shrimp ponds, fish farms (right outside the reserve), and beautiful flowers, and, with fancy digital binoculars and scopes, saw beautiful birds: spoonbills, herons, egrets, and ducks.
