2010 is a rather special year; it is the International Year of Biodiversity (IYB). There is still so much to learn about biodiversity in our little country. Chek Jawa remains a precious refuge for plants and animals thriving in its various ecosystems. If you have been following our blog, you will know that we regularly encounter mudskippers (lots of different species!), fiddler crabs, mud crabs, hornbills, kingfishers, eagles, sunbirds, jellyfishes and many kinds of fishes in the water. And if you think plants are boring, we hope to show you a couple of interesting ones in Chek Jawa.
