puts forth the work of
the volunteers to you

Being strong supporters of nature conservation, volunteers play a paramount role as nature advocates. The rewards that are reaped from their efforts are bountiful.
Volunteers? You would probably associate these people to meaningful work like spending time with old folks, giving tuition to under-privileged kids or helping out at a special school. Volunteers at Sungei Buloh Nature Park, on the other hand, contribute in a totally different aspect. What do they do?

Building rapport
among volunteers
They share the joy of observing and learning about nature by conducting guided walks for the public on Saturdays and Sundays; run programmes and activities organised by the Park; connect volunteers through creating a volunteer corner on the Park's website; share their knowledge and expertise by conducting training for other volunteers; make the Park an even more interesting and exciting place by brainstorming for creative ideas; share their captured beauty of nature by contributing photographs; share their thoughts on nature by contributing articles; and assist in our study of this unique habitat by participating in the Park's research work.

Sungei Buloh Nature Park, certainly needs dedicated people like our volunteers to keep it growing. Their efforts are much appreciated by the mangroves, the wildlife and of course, the staff of Sungei Buloh. We all have the same goal, which is to pass on Sungei Buloh as it is to the future generation, so let's continue to work towards that! Let our love for the Park continue to flourish. Bravo to all!
