Experience highlights
This 3-hour exploration is led by Subaraj Rajathurai, who has spent over 35 years actively involved in wildlife conservation and study in Southeast Asia. If there is a green, unspoiled part of Singapore, he knows where it is and what lives there, be it animal or plant life. For this wildlife watching experience, participants will receive an unparalleled introduction to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore’s first ASEAN Heritage Park, which Subaraj helped save from government development in 1987. Sungei Buloh was gazetted as protected natural land in 1993. This ecological jewel is home to diverse inhabitants, and from September to March, acts as a stopover point for migratory birds travelling from Siberia to Australia. Sungei Buloh is a key feeding ground on these birds’ migratory route. Some of these birds travel over twelve thousand kilometers to move between their winter and summer grounds. Thanks to Subaraj’s keen eye and deep knowledge of the land, participants will have the chance to encounter: Migratory Birds (such as shorebirds, plovers and sandpipers) Otters Herons Mudskippers Monitor lizards Water snakes
