Sat 8th Dec 2018: Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk - registration open for the 25th celebration!

Category : events

Registration is now open for the 2018 Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk, to be held on Saturday, 8th December 2018. For registration, please visit the Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk Eventbrite page.

Your guides are: Kok Oi Yee, Amy Choong, Adrian Loo, Airani S, Theresa Su, Xu Weiting and N. Sivasothi aka Otterman. The capacity for the walk is 80 persons. Please register by Sun 2nd December 2018.

On 6th December 1993 an area of Sungei Buloh mangrove was declared a nature park. Four years since, a group of veteran guides have conducted a free guided walk annually in celebration of the conservation of this mangrove. In 2001, we were delighted when the park was gazetted as a nature reserve and declared the Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve. And in 2014, more areas were added to the park as the SBWR extension.

Veteran guides from NUS 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 the crowd pleasers appear - the resident family of Smooth-coated otters and the crocodile.

Do join us for a lovely morning walk to celebrate the anniversary of the reserve!
