Sat 05 Dec 2009 - Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk

Category : events

Update: Registration for 2009 is closed (full). We will be back next year! Meanwhile, see Wild Happenings for a wide variety of free guided walks throughout the year at Sungei Buloh and other natuies areas in Singapore: http://wildsingaporehappenings.blogspot.com

Sungei Buloh mangrove was declared a nature park in 1993 and subsequently upgraded to nature reserve status in 2001. Since 1997, a bunch of veteran guides have conducted a free guided walk for the public in celebration of this remnant of an extraordinary ecosystem.

And yes, the tide will eventually rise to 3.2metres!

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

It is also time for the migratory birds that have winged down from the north. And sometimes the crowd pleasers appear - the resident family of Smooth-coated otters and the crocodile.

Guides for 2009: Airani S, Kok Oi Yee, Marcus Ng, Adrian Loo, Anand Balan, Ivan Khong, Anne Devan, Trina Chua, Xu Weiting, Siti Aisyah Bte Jamal, Joanne Khew, Teo Kah Ming, Grace Lo and N. Sivasothi (a.k.a. Otterman).

For registration (free) and more details, please visit the SBAW webpage.
