Online Workshop: Fun with Mangrove Wildlife

In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Education Committee led by Vice Chairperson Gloria Seow has temporarily suspended all nature walks. We have instead organised a number of online workshops and talks. Watch them on NSS's YouTube Channel or below:

Online Workshop: Fun with Mangrove Wildlife (conducted on 20 February 2021 on Zoom)



Join Gloria Seow in this online workshop to learn how to spot and identify the common wildlife found in mangroves around Singapore, such as at Sungei Buloh, Pasir Ris Park and Pulau Ubin. These hardy plants and animals can tolerate the salty and wet high tides, yet do not dry out completely during the low tides. Learn about the clever adaptations that allow them to survive in this amazing habitat. The workshop was followed by a Q&A segment. In the post-webinar survey, one participant remarked that "The workshop was very informative and I enjoyed it very much."
