2 Dec (Sun): Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk

Sungei Buloh mangrove was declared a nature park in 1993 and a nature reserve in 2001. Since 1997, a group of veteran and young guides have been conducting a free guided annual walk for the public in celebration of this remnant of an extraordinary ecosystem.

N. Sivasothi, friends and veteran guides from Raffles Museum Toddycats will regale you with stories about the animals, plants and the ecology of the mangrove. During the rising tide you will see tree-climbing crabs, mudskippers, drills, neritas, water monitors, archer fish, mullets, halfbeaks and garfish.

Besides the fauna and flora, their ecological adaptations and regional economic uses, we will also point out the nearby Mandai mangroves, remember the WWII invasion of Singapore through this area and contemplate the uncommon scene in of a river draining into the western straits of Johor!

It is also time for the migratory birds that have winged down from the north. And sometimes we are blessed with the crowd pleasers of Smooth-coated otters and the crocodile.

You must register and read the details so visit the Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk webpage. Register by 30 Nov (Fri).
