Wetland Park - get close to nature

Posted by Tuan Rumah | 10:51 PM | | 0 comments »

The largest man-made freshwater wetlands in the tropics, and the first of its kind in Malaysia, Taman Wetland comprises Wetland Park (138 hectares) along with several outlying wetland areas (197 hectares).

There are 24 wetland 'cells' in Taman Wetland and the main habitats are marshes, swamp forests and open water areas like ponds and lakes. Several species of local and exotic marshland birds spotted here include the Little Egret, Little Green Heron and Cinnamon Bittern.

Visitors can start by exploring the Wetland Park Visitors' Centre, which serves as the gateway to the wetlands area. It houses a Nature Interpretation Centre (NIC), an 80m-high look-out tower, which offers a bird's eye view of Putrajaya, two nature trails, a wetland plant nursery, a flamingo pond, picnic areas and other public amenities.

You can obtain information on the wetland plant bed filtration system, conservation of wetland habitats and the uses of wetland habitats and wetland products at the park.
