Sungei Buloh

The 130-hectare Wetland Reserve is an internationally significant link in the regional chain of stopovers for birds on the great annual north-south migration from September through to March. It is particularly important for wading birds, which feed on the adjacent costal mudflats at low tide and fly into the Park's ponds when the sea covers the mudflats.

The site was established at the end of 1993 as a conservation area, with a visitor center, boardwalks running through the mangroves, two observation towers, and bird-watching hides and screens looking out onto a variety of ponds - both brackish and freshwater. It exists in an agro-technology area, alongside vegetable farms, orchid nurseries and fish farms.

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Marvel at the rich mangrove 'swamp' ecology that once girdled the whole island. Look out for the pencil-like breathing roots of the Avicennia mangrove tree poking out of the mud and the dramatic stilt - or prop roots of Rhizophora species.

Besides a recorded total of 210 species of resident and migrant birds, there are many other creatures to see - from mud-skippers and (tree-climbing) crabs to snakes and dragon-like monitor lizards as well as a wealth of butterflies, which are attracted by specially planted native butterfly food plants.
