Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve's 15th Anniversary!
Category : events
In celebration of the anniversary of the official opening of Singapore's first wetlands reserve at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve, the Raffles Museum Toddycats conduct a free guided walk for the public every year. This year, on the 15th anniversary, we are adding an exciting talk by Otterman ("Adventures in the Mud!") as well as an examination of mangrove specimens from the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research so that visitors will appreciate the morphology and adaptations of mangrove denizens!
And we will hold this over two days! The mornings of 6th (Saturday) and 7th (Sunday) of December 2008.
Who is this walk for?
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.
Who are your guides?
Ivan, Tammy, Marcus, November, Zeehan, Oi Yee, Airani, Alvin, Adrian, Anand, Kah Meng, Theresa, Paul and Sivasothi (a.k.a. Otterman) - some old hands and a few slightly new ones!
