About their works

The Bird Watching Society actively engages in various bird research projects, including baseline surveys and waterbird monitoring in Inner Deep Bay, along the coast of South Lantau, and in Hong Kong waters. They also conduct global surveys for the Black-faced Spoonbill and local breeding surveys for terns, and contribute to the conservation work of endangered bird species such as Black-faced Spoonbill, Yellow-breasted Bunting, Spoon-billed Sandpiper and Chinese Crested Tern.
