Wild Lives review

Category : news

Ria Tan of WildSingapore.com was transformed from 0-100% blogger when she was recruited to the National Day blog. She decided to feature Wild Lives - places, people, plants and animals in Singapore. It has been a hectic two months and despite the confusing interface to use and view (she'd be much better off using blogger.com!) she got things settled and I looked forward to be greeted with yet another feature each morning!

As the blog draws to a close, she is now reviewing each of these categories which makes for some enjoyable reading.

The information is an eye opener, not just about the publicity-shy volunteers, but also, the places and organisms featured serve as a useful introduction to the natural treasures we still have in Singapore. It will not be lost as Ria has already archived (and will later possibly add to) the material at Wild Lives and Wild Places.

The faces below are the ones Ria managed to feature, and are just few of the many volunteers you meet once you venture into nature areas.
