Nature With No Barriers
Nature with No Barriers has helped to make the reserve more accessible to people with physical disabilities and to underprivileged communities. Over the years, hundreds of tours were organised with specially trained educators using enhanced site infrastructure, including universal access at two bird hides and along the main visitor path.
New facilities include 3D bird models, education panels and a mobile app. The six 3D bird models (black-faced spoonbill, black kite, common kingfisher, Eurasian wigeon, Eurasian curlew, spotted dove) include braille information panels and sound clips of the bird calls.
A portable digital telescope system was developed to enable visitors, especially those in wheelchairs, to observe birds close-up using tablets. Under the programme, we also installed a wireless live camera at a floating bird hide on the mudflat to provide views of birds and mudskippers.
