In an effort to promote an awareness of Singapore’s natural and historical heritage, and to promote conversations amongst Singaporeans, the HSS has begun the Herp Walk! We want to raise awareness, in particular, about Herps! These misunderstood creatures are often thought of as scary or unnecessary. But we want to show Singaporeans that Herps are important and integral to the Singaporean ecosystem!
So, do come down for our very first night walk at Pasir Ris Mangroves! From this little-known boardwalk, see the awesome herps that call Pasir Ris Mangroves their home. Learn about the importance of the mangrove ecosystem and the irreplaceable services they provide us with. Check out the unique flora and fauna that can be found in this special habitat.
Proudly brought to you by the Herpetological Society of Singapore
How much does it cost?
Good news! The Herp Walks are free! (Donations are accepted! We’ll use the money to cover our operating costs! )
What to bring to the event?
Just wear light clothing and shoes which you are comfortable in. Bring water for hydration. Insect repellant is not necessary, but may be brought along.
If possible, bring along a torchlight, although this is optional. The guides will have their own headlamps and torches and will point out interesting creatures to you.
In the interest of the environment, you do not have to print out your ticket. We will have a registration sheet. Simply register at the event itself.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
See you there!
Saturday, 9 July 2016 from 18:00 to 21:00 (SGT)
