Pedal Ubin returns! – Sat 10th & Sun 18th June 2023

NUS Toddycats is part of Pesta Ubin once again, offering free, guided bicycle rides through Pulau Ubin. We will share stories of the island’s nature, heritage and geography; a tradition dating back two decades to the Ubin Challenge in 1998.

This ride of fellowship is an enjoyable way to meet others and discover just some parts of the island through the simple joy of a leisurely cycle! Join us on these dates:

Catch the 7.30am bumboat from the Changi Village Ferry Terminal to reach Pulau Ubin, rent a bicycle and join us at the Wayang Stage at the Village centre. More details at the registration page: 10 Jun 2023 and 18 Jun 2023.

Don’t Stop Us Now – A Coastal Forest in Progress!

Two and a half years ago, NUS Toddycats joined the afforestation efforts at Kranji Coastal Nature Park, which NParks’ Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve had started. Since then, more than 500 volunteers have spent more than 2,500+ volunteer hours to nurture some 2,000 saplings in that 200 metre site. It sure takes a village!

With the plants persisting with tender loving care, animal life is following suit. And the work continues – we focus on interstitial planting, stave off aggressive pioneers and maintain the soil and leaf litter levels at stem bases.

You are all invited to join the community at one of our fortnightly habitat enhancement sessions at Kranji Coastal Nature Park – registration for our May and June sessions are now open:

And celebrate this call to action, Airani has produced this lovely video, Don’t Stop Us Now!

Environmental Student Groups in NUS

If are in the NUS campus and are interested to contribute to sustainability activities, hop over to the NUS Sustainabilty webpage for a listing of environmental student groups. More than 20 are listed from various academic programmes and residences and as they serve their specific communities, its a great way to meet your peers. 

NUS Sustainability ESGs

Most student groups will hunker down for the exams now. NUS Toddycats is a campus-wide group and our members are mainly that of alumni, some undergraduates and many friends! During the COVID-19 pandemic, we anchored our efforts in the habitat enhancement programme at Kranji Coastal Nature Park. That programme contnues through the exam period as it runs fortnightly.

WhIle we also kept mangrove cleanups going, albeit at a much lower frequency, we cautiously resumed some other activities. The Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk ran in February and Pedal Ubin was conducted in June. And this May we are delighted to focus once again on the Festival of Biodiverisity 2023
