The reserve is also known for its insect population, as well as its otters, mudskippers, fiddler crabs, shrimps, and fish.

  • Mai Po is a wetland along the key seasonal migration routes of birds. Every autumn, winter & early spring in HK, nature lovers can watch birds in the preserved wetland, where it doesn’t take too long nor much effort for urban dwellers to visit. However, a visiting permit is required either going in a group or on our own.
