Is wildsingapore an organisation?
No. wildsingapore.com is just a series of web resources that I,
Ria, run and fund alone as a volunteer. It is not an organisation,
it is not a group. I do not have volunteers.
wildsingapore provide guided walks?
I do not provide guiding services via wildsingapore.com. Please
see the factsheets on our wild places
for guided walks, and the many nature events listed on wildsingapore
happenings. Here's a list
of some professional guides if you would like to organise a
tour tailored to your needs.
What is wildsingapore.com about?
My hope is that wildsingapore.com can provide useful information for
those who want to learn about our wild places; and do more for them.
I first started wildsingapore.com as a companion
website to the Chek Jawa
guidebook. To contain all the wonderful photos and information
that I just couldn't squeeze into the guidebook. Since then, it
has grown to contain lots more of the wild places, wild activities
and wild people that I have come across.
What is wildsingapore.com's theme?
One person CAN make a difference!

How to feature your blog/nature activity

Wild events are now hosted on the wildsingapore
happenings blog. Here's
details on how to post your event on this blog.
Requests for interviews/information
for student projects
Please fill in this
form for requests for interviews or information for student
Requests for public
I do give public talks and enjoy reaching out to as many people
as possible. Please include the following in your request
(a) your organisation and details about its mission
(b) theme of the talk or event
(c) target audience: number of people, age, general background
(d) other speakers at your event
Here are some of the constraints I face. Please try to bear them
in mind in your request
(a) I am committed to low tide documentation from March-October
and can only give talks from November-February.
(b) Preparing for a talk takes up a fair bit of my resources and
it is more worthwhile for me to make this investment for talks to
a large audience of at least 50 persons.
When you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
please put "wildsingapore attention ria tan" in the subject
line, I get a lot of spam in at this address.
