WWF-Singapore believes in protecting the biodiversity of our own city. Despite being a small island, Singapore is a haven of rich biodiversity that needs to be preserved and supported by all stakeholders. Our local initiatives seek to tackle these issues, but we need your help in continuing our efforts to engage individuals and communities in creating a better home for all of us.
These programmes are designed to raise climate awareness and provide opportunities to the public to learn more about nature and forge a greater connection with the environment, inspiring action towards protecting it.
OneMillionTrees: Supporting the Singapore Green Plan 2030
As part of NPark’s effort to transform Singapore into a City of Nature, in alignment with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the OneMillionTrees (OMT) movement aims to restore nature by planting a million more trees across the city in the next 10 years. WWF-Singapore organises tree planting events to support the goal together with our partners, volunteers and staff.
Since the launch of the movement by NParks in April 2020, over 400,000 trees have been planted in the last two years.
We also curate full-fledged programmes that educate participants on the importance of greenery in combating climate change. WWF-Singapore plans to reach 500 individuals to plant trees within the next year.
Increased temperature, flash floods and cold spells are just the beginning of the climatic changes we would experience here in Singapore. Beyond that lies other environmental issues such as plastic pollution, illegal trade of wildlife parts and products and the decline in biodiversity as a whole.
Our local initiatives seek to tackle these issues, but we need your help in continuing our efforts to engage individuals and communities in creating a better Home for all of us. All 5.9 million (and counting) of us need to work together on the same goal.
What if we told you we could work together to slow down the effects of climate change and other environmental concerns in Singapore? We are calling out for funds to support our outreach efforts and activities, to help heighten awareness and encourage adoption of green measures in the wider community.
Rifle Range Nature Park, which opened in November 2022, is a key site providing ecological connectivity for important biodiversity areas in Singapore.
WWF-Singapore organises free monthly guided walks to Rifle Range Nature Park for members of the public to explore and discover the beauty nature provides. During the walk, experienced guides from WWF-Singapore will share about our rich natural heritage. Participants will have a chance to spot species such as the Straw-headed Bulbul, Malayan Colugo and others. These walks offer an opportunity to learn more about Singapore’s fascinating flora and fauna.
Our first ever public walk, held in January 2023, was a great success, and we invite you to join one of our upcoming walks. Do visit our registration page HERE for the guided walk dates.
Pre-registrations are required, so do sign-up ahead as spots are taken up very quickly!
People are the foundation of the work we do in WWF-Singapore. By learning more about biodiversity, we can forge a greater connection between humans and nature, and inspire action towards preserving our fragile ecosystems. Our aim is to provide the masses with opportunities to learn more about nature and biodiversity, by immersing themselves in environmental hotspots here in the very heart of Singapore.
There is much to be done to keep Singapore green and rich in biodiversity. Everyone must do their part and here’s how you can help.
Apart from signing up for individual programmes and initiatives that engage in different areas like Climate, Sustainability and Circular Economy, and Nature and Biodiversity, you could donate here to support WWF-Singapore’s work here.
A little bit goes a long way.
