Meet and Greet with Mai Po Partners – Buffaloes!

(Participants do NOT need to make reservations in advance. Please arrive at the checkpoint 5-10 minutes before the start of the tour session.)

In 2006, buffaloes were introduced to Mai Po Nature Reserve to help maintain the freshwater marshes. Their grazing helps control the height of vegetation and they also like to wallow, which creates unique micro-habitats for organisms such as frogs and dragonflies. Over the years, WWF has used different approaches and technologies to evaluate the effectiveness of our buffaloes’ habitat management work. When you visit Mai Po for W4N, you’ll get to see our hardworking colleagues in action and appreciate their contribution!​
