Big Bird Race - Professional Race
© WWF-Hong Kong

Big Bird Race is WWF-Hong Kong’s longest-running birdwatchers event. Generating strong enthusiasm locally and from overseas, the event has grown in the last four decades, attracting teams that will vie to spot the most species in 12 hours. Funds raised by teams directly contribute to the habitat management of Mai Po Nature Reserve, to give birds and other wildlife a better home. The Big Bird Race has grown into a legendary challenge for local bird lovers. It is becoming a regionally important bird-watching challenge, attracting school participants to join. We also actively seek new teams to join each year.
