Hong Kong Wetland Park celebrates World Wetlands Day 2018

To echo with the theme“Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future”, Hong Kong Wetland Park (HKWP) organised a series of fun-filled activities to celebrate World Wetlands Day (WWD) 2018. The activities included the winter signature event Bird Watching Festival, public lectures, workshops, bird watching guided tours, bird race and “Flying Marvels” thematic exhibition.

The Bird Watching Festival 2017/18 introduced to visitors the various interesting extremes of birds. In the art workshops, children committed to conserve and use wetlands wisely through making their unique WWD badges. Moreover, over 150 secondary school students joined the inter-school bird race to promote bird-watching activities among schools and raise the awareness towards the conservation of birds and the environment.
