“Walk for Nature” is an annual fundraising event held in Hong Kong’s iconic Mai Po Nature Reserve that has been held for the past 25 years. Participants walk a set route around the Reserve, which is in the Inner Deep Bay wetlands. Mai Po was recognized as “Wetland of International Importance” under the Ramsar Convention in 1995. Since 1940s, observers at the Mai Po Inner Deep Bay wetlands have recorded a total of 400 different species of birds, accounting for 75 per cent of the known bird species in Hong Kong and giving it a reputation as a paradise for birds. Among them are 35 species that are classified as worldwide endangered species. The Reserve also provides habitat for many species of both flora and fauna.
Walk for Nature, WWF-Hong Kong’s most significant educational fundraising event, aims to engage the public about the need to protect Hong Kong’s local natural environment and strengthen their awareness of the importance of environmental conservation.
