In recent years, Sanya's native bird population has become dangerously threatened, especially the Hainan Egret. Thanks to the work at this reserve, more than a thousand egrets call this place home.
Though there is very little English, this is a very relaxing place to wander around and take a break from the crazy beach scene. Plus, you can feel good about giving back and supporting Sanya's wildlife.
