Recent news reports - Hopea sangal sculpture and Pedal Ubin

Category : news

"Felled heritage tree is now art for all to see." By Sarah Ng, Streats, 08 Apr 2004. [pdf] "Said Dr Ho Yew Kee, deputy chief executive officer of the Wildlife Reserves Singapore, the parent company of the zoo: "With the planting of the seedling, we hope that over the next 150 years, the Hopea sangal tree will grow to its majestic height of 35m, giving future generations the opportunity to appreciate a live Hopea sangal tree.""

"New nature-cum-heritage guided bicycle trail to discover Ubin." By Bridgette See, Channel News Asia, 11 Apr 2004. [pdf] "A group of cyclists and nature lovers have banded together to launch a free nature-cum-heritage guided trail called "Pedal Ubin". Instead of walking, the tours at Pulau Ubin will bring participants to the far ends of the island on bicycles. "Pedal because we want to sell (peddle) Ubin, and pedal because we want to cycle Ubin, so for Pedal Ubin we're selling Ubin on a bicycle," said Airani Ramli, Pedal Ubin's project manager."

This project was resucitated to introduce to the public aspects of nature and heritage in Ubin beyond Chek Jawa. Sign up at the home page.
