Sungei Buloh had a special mangrove exhibition yesterday to celebrate World Wetlands Day as well as International Year of Forests 2011.
Mega Marine Survey on Pulau Ubin, I managed to get a glimpse of some of the many fun happenings at Sungei Buloh yesterday.
Wow, we get to taste the mangroves! There's a lovely set up of food products from the mangroves which you can sample.
Nipah palm, there's everyone's favourite desert 'attap chee', and gula melaka or brown sugar.

Saturday was also the launch of the new free wireless trail at Sungei Buloh which allows visitors to use their smartphones to get multimedia content like videos of the reserve's wildlife, bird calls and quizzes. More about downloading software from http://www.czip.sg/. More media articles about the wireless trail.
Saturday was a busy day! I joined the enthusiastic volunteers at the Mega Marine Survey at Pulau Ubin in the morning for a very muddy but fun field trip. I only just managed to catch the Sungei Buloh mangrove exhibition before they shut down for the day.
monthly free guided tour of the Chek Jawa boardwalk. I met the Crabs at Changi Jetty before I headed out for the Mega Marine Survey. I'm sure they had another great walk, and I'm sorry I couldn't be with them.
