Apologies for the lack of updates over the weekend, but I was busy with (and also recuperating after) Day 1 of Wow Wild West! Many of the visitors learnt about the mammals of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, and while they didn’t really get to see that many mammals on the guided walk (besides a fleeting glimpse of a squirrel and some roosting fruit bats), they did find out more about some of the species found in the reserve, as well as the signs that we can use as clues to their presence. Kudos to all my colleagues for their hard work in making this a success, and thanks to s0undasleep for showing her support by attending the activities as well. Stay tuned for information about the next 3 installments!
Here are some photos of mammals that can be found in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. Note that not all of these carcasses were found within Sungei Buloh, just that they belong to species known to be present in the area.
