What's happening this week? Introducing WildSingapore Happenings!
Category : news
WildSingapore Happenings emerged sometime last month after Ria Ta, the indefatigable "machine" behind WildSingapore searched for a more sustainable model than her ftp-based webpage updates. Needing something entirely web-based, she looked at blog templates and soon after some experiments and input from kakis, she is satisfied with Blogger!
So now there are two blogs that are being furiously updated complete with feed subscription for the more savvy users: WildSingapore Happenings and WildSingapore News - both are hosted on Blogspot and provide a feedburner rss feed - feeds.feedburner.com/WildHappeningsInSingapore and feeds.feedburner.com/WildsingaporeNews. The news page has additional feeds so hop over to explore if you want something more specific.
Of the two blogs, I highlight wildsingaporehappenings.blogspot.com here first. This site will keep you abreast of the nature and environment related events and activities that pepper our island by the various groups. It is, as we like to say, "non-denominational." With this blog and the option to view what's happening just this week, the headache of keeping track of events is over. A click is all it takes!
There are even categories for type of activity (e.g. walks, cycling, art appreciation) and location. Now all event organisers have to do is make sure they are listed there. With less time to update Habitatnews and some time available now to rethink its architeture and objectives, I am redirecting all nature and environment related advertisements to WildSingapore Happenings. In future, I will post a feed into Habitatnews like I have done so below. I would encourage all the nature-related blogs to host that feed as well.
Now, I just have to look for something a little less bulky!

Sun 9th Dec 2006: 8am - guided walk for Sungei Buloh's (SBWR) birthday!
Category : events
In celebration of the anniversary of the official opening of Singapore's first wetlands reserve at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve, volunteers of NUS' Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (Toddycats!), conduct a free walk for the public every year on the Sunday closest to the 6th December anniversary. This year, the walk will be conducted on Sunday, 9th December 2007.
Who is this walk for?
Who are your guides?
What will you hear about and see?
It's also time for the migratory birds that have winged down from the north and if we are luck, we will see the gems - the resident family of Smooth-coated otters and the crocodile! See photos from the 2005 walk.
