Walk For Nature 2016 步走大自然
WWF Hong Kong will hold it's annual Walk for Nature fundraising event at Mai Po on 26th and 27th November 2016.
The Walk for Nature is one of WWF's major public outreach and fundraising events, highlighting the importance of wildlife conservation to participants by providing a first-hand experience of wetlands and wildlife. The theme for this year's event is "Be a Citizen Scientist", showcasing how our conservation efforts preseve Mai Po's ecological assets.
During the event, participants will follow a route from the Visitor Centre to the Education Centre, around the freshwater ponds near the education centre, along footpath of gei wai #12/13 and back to the visitor centre along the Border Fence Road. Participants will not go behind the fence into the Frontier Closed Area and floating boardwalk. WWF staff and volunteers will be situated along the route to inform visitors about the wetlands at Mai Po and their importance for wildlife.
Please note that the Car Park will not be accessible for public vehicles, and will be reserved for events related to the Walk for Nature and coaches bringing participants to the event. If you are planning to visit the reserve on the dates mentioned above, we advise you to take public transport. We apologise for any inconvenience to regular visitors to the reserve, but the event is an important part of the WWF to raise money and promote the conservation message to members of the public.
