Make a date with the Crabs - Saturday, July 24th

Join us for our monthly nature walk at Chek Jawa Boardwalk in July!

Learn more about the biodiversity of the flora and fauna in Singapore. After all, 2010 is declared the International Year of Biodiversity by United Nations, and we are celebrating its significance by helping to raise awareness of the importance of conserving biodiversity for human well-being. You too can be part of this. Bring your family and friends out to get away from the urban landscape and to enjoy a wild and natural place in Singapore.

Date: 24 July 2010, Saturday
Time: 9:30 am
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk, Pulau Ubin
Cost: still free for now

Registration is required. Please write to nakedhermitcrabs@gmail.com

How to get to Chek Jawa?

1) Take the bumboat to the island of Pulau Ubin from Changi Village.

2) Once you arrive at Ubin, you can find a lot of island taxis (vans) near the jetty. Tell the taxi driver to take you to Chek Jawa.

Give yourself 45-60 minutes to travel from Changi Village to Chek Jawa at a leisurely pace.

How many people can I sign up for?

We welcome small family and friend groups of around 6 people or fewer. For large groups and organisations, we suggest you pool your resources and hire professional guides. Write to us and we will tell you who they are.
