Night Walk with the Vertebrate Study Group, Nature Society (Singapore): 13 Jun (Sat)

See Ubin and its inhabitants in a different light at night! As darkness descends on the island, wildlife emerges and takes over the night shift. Enjoy the breeze while we make our way along the kampung roads without street lights. There is lots to see and hear. Move quietly and there is chance to see and learn about snakes, civets, and perhaps even a glimpse of an owl or the greater mousedeer.

Bring a torch and water. A pair of binoculars will come in handy too.

Limited to 40 persons. Recommended age: 12 and up. Beginners are welcomed. You must be able to walk for 2 hours at a slow pace.

Bumboats for night activities (Just for Ubin Day!) Arrangements have been made for a bumboat (or two) to be available for your travel back to the mainland. They will charge $40 per boat ($3.30 per person for 12 persons) instead of $30 per boat. With only one or two bumboats, it may take a while to transport a large group back to the mainland. Thank you for your patience!

Date: 13 Jun (Sat)
Time: 8-10pm
Venue: Meet 7.50pm at the Assembly Area opposite the HSBC Volunteer Hub, map.
No charge, the activity is free!

Registration is required: Registration has closed as the maximum number of people have already signed up for the walk.

  1. Dear Nature Society Singapore,

    We would LOVE to join you for this night walk but my mom and I will be away. If there is good response, would you consider organizing another one on the next Saturday? We will def go for that! And we can help gather a few more participants too :)

    Hope we can make this happen, thank you!
