Nowadays, our children growing up in urban Singapore are having less contact with nature. There should be more opportunities for them to learn about nature and biodiversity. Bring your children out from the house to the local nature areas and show them the wonderful biodiversity of flora and fauna in Singapore. Leave no child inside.
To find out more about the nature areas in Singapore, visit the National Parks Board and Wildsingapore websites for information on our nature areas, including: Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve; Pulau Ubin and Chek Jawa; Labrador Nature Reserve and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.
Guided walks are conducted for some nature areas and we would recommend you to bring your children for such walks to gain more knowledge about the particular area. Some people are mistaken that Singapore is too small to have any nature areas worth visiting, but the biodiversity in these small areas are still an eye-opener if you are willing to spend some time there.
Sign up today for a guided walk to a nature area with your children, and make a commitment to visit at least one nature area every month.
