Biodiversity of Mai Po
1. To establish historical trends and foster local and regional involvement by collating existing biological information from Mai Po Nature Reserve and its nearby environs;
2. To gather the most up-to-date biological information from the Mai Po and Inner Deep Bay Ramsar site through in-depth biological field surveys;
3. To engage “citizen scientists” and enhance the biodiversity knowledge of the general public and secondary school and university students through participation in these biological surveys;
4. To share wetland conservation knowledge and ideas by publishing related education materials and organizing wetland-themed symposiums.
The findings of these surveys will be extremely important to WWF’s management work at Mai Po Nature Reserve. At the same time, these findings will serve as a valuable reference point for the government’s BSAP. Perhaps most significantly, students and the public will have the chance to witness Hong Kong’s biodiversity first hand and participate in professional scientific research by joining us as citizen scientists.
