Anyone can take part. Training session available. For more details, email Yap Xinli (Yap_Xinli@NParks.gov.sg)

Herons are predators at the top of the freshwater food chain. As they are good indicators of our environmental health, it is important to monitor how well they are coping in our local setting. Anyone can take part in Heron Watch by contributing information about heron sightings at green spaces in your neighbourhood, canals and wooded parks.

Herons are large birds that are easily identified. Novice birders can learn to identify the common species of herons at our training session on 10 Dec 2016 at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Wetland Centre.
