First Chek Jawa Boardwalk trip for 2011

Hi friends!

We are holding our first Chek Jawa Boardwalk trip of 2011 on 8 Jan (Saturday). Give yourself a treat and get out to enjoy one of Singapore's beautiful natural shores. No, there are no al fresco coffee joints in Chek Jawa; no beach-front seafood restaurants either. Chek Jawa is a natural shore where you will still see inter-tidal marine life and mangrove swamps. As in many of our past trips, we expect to see fiddler crabs, mudskippers, fishes, mangrove tree-climbing crabs, monitor lizards, and, if we are lucky, the critically-endangered Oriental Pied Hornbill and otters.

Date: 8 January, 2011 (Saturday)
Time: 9:30 am
Duration: about 2 hours
Meeting Place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk, Pulau Ubin
Cost: Free (you have to pay for the bumboat and taxi rides to get to Chek Jawa)

Write to to register for the walk.

Please keep your group small, preferably fewer than 10 people, so that we can welcome as many family and friend groups as possible. If you are organising a corporate event, we encourage you to hire the professional nature guides.

2011 - Free Chek Jawa Boardwalk trips on the 2nd Saturday of each month

Good news! The Crabs have decided to continue with the free Chek Jawa Boardwalk trips in 2011.

Looking back at the time when we started this project..... Our very first outing with registered guests was to visit the reef shore at Tanjong Rimau, Sentosa, on 5th June 2007, Environment Day. And our first Chek Jawa Boardwalk trip was on 9th September that same year. Time flies! We have done more than 3 years worth of monthly trips, bringing possibly more than 1000 people (we've lost count!) to Chek Jawa to appreciate the natural beauty of one of Singapore's wild coastal areas. We have also trained several new guides who now volunteer with us, and who are eager to share what they know of Chek Jawa with you.

Mark these dates. Write to us at if you wish to join us for a walk.
