Massive extension at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, upgrade of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve's visitor centre and facilities, and new signages at Pulau Ubin.
Sharon Chan who leads at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve gave an update of the exciting developments on the Extension of the Reserve. The public often complain that the Reserve is a long way away from the main road. The Extension will literally bring the Mountain to Mohammed, by bringing the Visitor Centre to the Main Road!

In the course of conversation, the brand new critter cams at Sungei Buloh were mentioned. After the meeting, many of us decided to find out exactly where these cameras were. Loading up the livestreaming videos on our smart phones from http://www.nparks.gov.sg/animalcam, we figured out some of the locations. This one has a view of the otters' favourite resting spot near the pond at the Visitor Centre.
predawn trip to Pulau Hantu today, I was glad I attended this lively and informative dialogue session. Now it's time for a short nap before I head out for another predawn trip to Big Sisters Island!
