|A spectacular view at from the Jejawi Tower!|
From monkeys to wild boar, birds to butterflies, crabs to mudskippers, and fascinating plants of the mangroves and shores, some of which are rare elsewhere. If we are lucky we may encounter otters or even a dugong. (There will be NO activities on the seashores).
Chek Jawa is also full of history. Volunteers will share about these too. Among the heritage of Chek Jawa is House No. 1, where there will be more activities for the family!
|Our last celebration of Chek Jawa was |
the Dugong Ambassadors event in 2008
The volunteers of the Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative and Mangrove Action Squad will also be at Chek Jawa to share about their exciting ground-up community effort to restore mangroves at Pulau Ubin!
Get FREE mangrove colouring sheets! Four different sheets, each featuring different plants and animals and human activities in the mangrove forest.
While volunteers of TeamSeaGrass will share about seagrasses which dugongs love to eat. And how you can join them to monitor the seagrasses of Singapore. Get this FREE TeamSeaGrass colouring sheet.
Ubin Bird Lovers will also be at Chek Jawa to point out the amazing birds that live, hunt and forage here. Get their FREE colouring sheet too!
