Sungei Buloh walk with FASStrack Asia students

Last Saturday, Toddycats Alvin, Sarah, Kar Mun and Katie took 40 students taking part in the FASStrack Asia summer school programme for a morning walk at Sungei Buloh.  Hailing from US, UK, Vietnam, Turkey,  Canada, Australia, Mexico, Europe, Japan, China, Taiwan, as well as NUS, it was a good opportunity to introduce to them the wild side of Singapore. It was also a very good way for them to get used to our local weather and get over jet lag!

Despite the 35 degree heat, it was an engaging walk enjoyed by the participants, with Alvin’s group lucky enough to catch sight of  two crocodiles! Besides the two crocs, monitor lizards and skinks were among some of the wildlife spotted at SBWR that morning. Each group focussed on different topics based on the interest of the students and guides, and according to Alvin, his group was particularly fascinated with Nephilia spiders and their webs!

We’re glad everyone had a good time and it was a good start to their five weeks of summer school here in Singapore 🙂
