SUNGEI BULOH WETLAND RESERVE
The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve was recognized as a site of international importance for migratory birds, and was awarded a certificate by Wetlands International, marking the reserve's formal entry into the East Asian Australasian Shorebird Site Network
In 2003, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve became Singapore's first ASEAN Heritage Park. Since then it has expanded to include 202ha of mangroves, mudflats, ponds and forests. This includes the newest extension that houses a brand new Visitor Centre and new trails for visitors to explore and enjoy. This new extension is situated along Kranji Way.
EEE students participates regularly in conservation activities at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. Such activities include:
- replanting and enhancing the reserve with native flora including mangrove species;
- removal of litter washed up on the mangroves;
- removal of invasive weed species and;
- preparing the mudflats for the annual arrival of the migratory shorebirds
The maintenance of mudflats in the wetland reserve is important for the migratory shorebirds so that they have a place to rest and re-fuel before continuing on their long migratory journey.
