Eight little wild boar piglets greeted us at Chek Jawa! Also mudskippers, crabs, durian flowers and lots more!
Naked Hermit Crab walk for 2014! It was my first 'overseas trip' in six months since I broke my foot.
Chek Jawa is a beautiful coastal area on Pulau Ubin, an island just 15 minutes away from the mainland by bumboat. One of the tricky portions for The Foot is getting on the boat at Changi Jetty. This happened quite safely and easily with help from the Crabs.
Nipah palm which produce 'attap-chee'. The palms were blooming today!
colourful fiddler crabs that usually the kids spot first.
durian flowers! This means that we should have a good durian crop in about 100 days!
guide sheets put up by the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research at the time when we were doing guided walks in 2001 before reclamation at Chek Jawa was deferred.
There's lots of reasons to visit Pulau Ubin and Chek Jawa. Come and join the Naked Hermit Crabs for the next free monthly guided tour and find out more about Pulau Ubin and explore it on your own.
