Sweng and I were down at the Henderson Waves one December morning and soaked in the cool weather (thanks to the early morning rain) and nice scenery.
We were totally enchanted by the beauty of nature that surrounded us.
We strolled along the bridges, pausing now and then to enjoy the scenery and attempt some shots on our phones.
And just when our extravagant walk was about to come to an end, standing on a bridge near Lock Road, we saw a familiar scene.
Yes! Nestled among other young trees on a green field below was the young tree BGO planted in April 2008. We had forgotten to bring along our camera when we planted it last year through Garden City Fund, and now I just had to take a long shot at it.
We were very happy to see the trees growing well and the area much greener than when we first came for the tree-planting.
Ah..... it was a nice morning walk.
We are happy and extremely excited to learn that we are going to have our very own wildlife rescue centre in Singapore soon.
ACRES or Animal Concerns Research and Education Society started to build the 2-hectare ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC) in 2007 at Sungei Tengah Agrotech Park. It is now partially opened. It will be the first wildlife rescue centre that helps to save and improve the lives of captive animals.
BGO has committed to tree-planting at the AWRC in Dec last year, with the support of Tribal DDB Singapore. The picture below shows a raintree planted outside a classroom at the AWRC.
Thank you Louis from ACRES and Samantha from Tribal DDB!
AWRC is needing more funds and other donations in kind. Do log on to their website to find out how you can help to support the centre.
