About this book

The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in northwest Singapore is perhaps not widely known, but since 1989 it has been a safe haven for several species of migratory birds as well as a habitat for mangroves and many species of swamp dwellers. Wetlands in a City: The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve has outstanding photographs on every page. An account is given of the difficult beginnings of the Reserve, the policies which underlie it, and the need for meticulous management to promote eco-balance. The photographs indicate what wonders the patient visitor may see from the boardwalks and viewing posts. Some of the urgent challenges which face the Reserve are outlined and its educational and international roles are noted. Bibliography and index.
