Wetland in Seac Pai Van

  

Located in the northeast corner of Seac Pai Van Park, Wetland in Seac Pai Van is an area near a mountain stream native to Macao. It was originally an area where only Dicranopteris pedata grew and it was severely covered by vines and foreign invasive plants. It had little ecological function and was unable to attract animals to stay and settle down. Through the improvement of the water bodies in the area, planning of the visiting route of the wetland and installation of facilities such as recreational platforms and pavilions, the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) used a progressive approach to carry out diversion and storage of water and grow native plant species to attract different kinds of animals and insects. After many years of effort, the area has gradually become a wetland environment.

Interested residents are free to visit Wetland in Seac Pai Van from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. Crowd control measures may be implemented depending on the actual situation.
