On the 5th of September 2010 a group of enthusiastic WWF Members joined WWF’s inaugural outing especially organized for its Members. The group went to the lovely Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. The 130-ha area was designated as a nature park in 1989 and became Singapore’s first AEAN Heritage Park in 2003.
The experienced guide, K.C., walked the group along the boardwalk leading through the “sea of trees” . Mangroves exist in the transient world of land and sea having to endure the relentless rhythm of the tides. Life at land’s end is harsh, yet many have triumphed over the adverse environment with each inhabitant playing a role in making the ecosystem a viable and dynamic one. Thereafter, K.C. took the group via various observation hides to the Aerie, an 18-m tall tower platform that offers panoramic view of the Wetland Reserve. Despite the slight rain, beautiful and fascinating flora and fauna, like the egrets, kingfishers, crabs, mudskippers and even many monitor lizards were spotted.
