First guided walk at Pasir Ris mangrove for year 2013

The Naked Hermit Crabs are back on the guided walk at Pasir Ris mangrove!
Despite the heavy downpour in the western part of Singapore, it was relatively dry at Pasir Ris Park. On our first guided walk at Pasir Ris mangroves for the year, we had a turnout of about 30 visitors  of various ages. It was heartening to see our past visitors joining us for the same walk again.

It is great to see families bring their children out to experience nature.

Mud Lobster sighting on first outing in 2013

On Saturday, 2nd March, 50 visitors of all ages joined us at an outing to Chek Jawa Boardwalk in Pulau Ubin. This marks the first of our monthly free nature walks to Chek Jawa in 2013, and all of us, visitors and guides, had a great time exploring the mangroves and coastal areas together. Here are some photographs and drawings from the trip. Enjoy!

The best sighting for the day was the Mud Lobster! Visitors in Ria and PY's groups managed to see it in the water down at the boardwalk. What a rare treat it was! Why? Because most of the time, we are only able to TALK about the mud mounds made by the mud lobsters, and 99% of the time, we will NOT be able to SEE the shy creature itself.
