Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre is of the only remains of mangrove forest that once existed extensively along the coastal region of Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Previously known as Likas Swamp or Likas Mangrove and later Kota Kinabalu City Bird Sanctuary, the Centre came foremost out of 20 wetlands selected by the Sabah Wetlands Inventory Committee in 1986.The Centre is an important refuge and feeding ground for many species of resident birds, as well as several migratory bird species from Northern Asia. In addition, it is a breeding ground for marine life protected by the Fishery Department of Sabah.Apart from providing shelter and food for both resident and migratory species of wildlife, wetlands also prevent salt build-up in surrounding freshwater supplies, stabilising sedimentation, storing nutrients and removing toxins.

  • This is supposed to be a place for bird lovers though I didnt see many birds it is quite interesting and takes only 15min to go around. 
  • Get not quite simply any taxi, whether to seek the assistance of the local. Not so difficult, just on the bus, which goes in the direction of Likasa should ask local tell where to get out. And perpendicular to the highway road goes, go is not long. Very educational. Extreme will not get a glimpse of the marshy areas where no tourist in their right mind goes, you can!
