Located in South Lantau, Shui Hau’s diverse set of ecological habitats is home to over 500 terrestrial and marine species. The sandflat covers an area of 30 hectares and is a well-known recreational clam digging spot.
Unregulated clam digging activities have brought negative ecological consequences to Shui Hau. Our research shows that the number of clams is declining and other important species, such as the endangered Chinese horseshoe crab, are disturbed by human activities.
WWF team scientists will guide participants in experiencing the environment and ecology of Shui Hau and understanding the code of conduct for clam-digging activity, which allows users to enjoy nature while reducing the activities’ environmental impact.
Activity content includes:
• an introduction to Shui Hau Bay’s ecology and biodiversity
• experiencing citizen science activity
• understanding traditional clam-collecting methods of local villagers
