Subvention projects

The HKSAR government works closely with NGOs including the World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong (WWFHK) in wetland conservation and supports such activities by means of government subvention.

The WWFHK has assisted the Government to manage the Mai Po Nature Reserve (MPNR) of about 230 hectares since 1984. The prime goals of the management are to conserve, maintain and improve wetland habitats and the biodiversity and key species in the Deep Bay area. WWFHK carries out the daily management of the MPNR based on the Mai Po Management Plan for the Mai Po Marshes Wildlife Education Centre and MPNR which was prepared according to the objectives and restrictions of the management zones of the Ramsar site. The plan was revised in 2013 as the Mai Po Nature Reserve Habitat Management, Monitoring and Research Plan 2013-18. Wetland habitats including gei wais and reedbed are managed to provide roosting and foraging sites suitable to the migratory birds. WWFHK offers educational walks to students and the general public under entry quota.
