Buddy Up with Buffaloes

(Brand New Programme! 1-day Children Class)


Buffaloes in Mai Po are our important conservation partners!
In the coming Easter Holiday, kids aged 9-12 will become 1-day conservationists and learn how to be a wetland engineer from our buffaloes.

They will also assist our conservationists to take care of our buffaloes, record their behaviour, collect data and remove invasive species in gei wai. They will join hands with our conservationists and buffaloes to protect Mai Po Nature Reserve!
