There are some special plants in a tiny sliver of mangroves at Woodlands Park.
an otter there!
Among the special trees found in this mangrove are probably among the last naturally wild Berembang (Sonneratia caseolaris) on the mainland. This tree is Critically Endangered. The last time I was here a year ago, I saw two of them. Earlier on, I noticed one that looked like a dead Berembang. The two remaining trees are very tall, about 15-20m tall. One of them, however, doesn't look very healthy. Oh dear.
Durian air (Brownlowia tersa), which is listed as Endangered. Wow, the bushy plant has grown since I last saw it! There seems to also be smaller plants around it.
my previous trip, there were many branches snapped off the plant.
Mangrove trumpet tree (Dolichandrone spathacea)?! This tree is listed as Critically Endangered.
Jejawi (Ficus microcarpa). This is great as this fig tree provides food for a wide variety of birds and other animals.
Citharexylum quadrangulare). And they were blooming, attracting bees and butterflies.
Mostly plastic bags that are not binned. These slip into our drains and then into our canals and eventually the sea.
