Dearest Ria The end of this NDP moblogging doesn't mean we will not meet again. I have planned a series of nature trails with my family and colleagues, we will surely bumped into each other again among the snails and spiders and beautiful little creatures you have passionately introduced to us. I don't think I can ever keep up with your energy and spirit of volunteering. Thank you Ria for all your comments and support to my Cause to. See you soon!

Hello dear Ria, kum siah, dall chej, terima kasih, thank you, arigatou, Vielen Dank, Merci, nandri ... for the wonderful and I know tiring but probably inspiring tasks for this month! The ripples of your efforts, I am sure, are moving out in waves, touching many people's lives. I am sure all of us appreciate what you have done, that probably no one else has come close (^^) Your Blog will live on in our minds, and certainly help made many minds in what they want to do for Singapore!

thanks for promoting the happenings in Ubin. I am completely out of touch. Didn't know there could be anything interesting there

Your motto "Make a difference, no matter how small" --- juz to let you know that you have already made a little difference in my life:). You have increased my interest for the nature.

Thanks, Ria, for showing us that there are so many people who are dedicated to caring for, documenting and teaching about Singapore's wild places. You all have shown that small does not mean insignificant. Indeed, because we have so little, there is so much more reason to treasure it. I salute everyone of you, the wild people of our land. Maju-lah!

Ria just loves living on the edge. If not the conesnail, the stonefish, the snake, the scorpion etc etc........... Come to think of it, better than eat sleep work worry then illness........ You really live life to the fullest. Cheers

think this is a great opportunity for nature lovers! we always complain that the government doesn't listen to nature people, but now they're actually soliciting feedback. if we keep quiet, we'll be the ones doing this cause the greatest disservice.

It's great to see the human faces behind the signs and homes of Pulau Ubin! Good to know that this information and way of life is being recorded for posterity

commenting on the feature on Alan
Nothing like starting them young. I think Alan's kids are lucky to be able to know nature from a young age! Like father like children ... we have hope in our next generation. (^^) This is a good example of making time rather than saying no time. (^^) Great work Alan! Ria, as always, a great report!

such a long way from 'i want to do a diving project...' now you're 'wonderful'! i wonder who else we can 'gently persuade' to join the volunteer movement, hehehe... But in all seriousness, all these great activities and projects wouldn't make it without the dedication and effort of the people involved. Hats off!
Posted by grayowl Posted on 12/08/04 15:41
Wow! We have hope in Singapore. (^^) Ria, I am amazed at the number of wonderful people you throw up in this Blog. Let's have a who's who gallery ... about the people passionate about nature, of course. Couldn't wait to see what you will throw up tomorrow. (^^)

Happy National Day, Ria and all! Fantastic effort here - 0 to 100% blogger in days!
Posted by yman Posted on 09/08/04 11:58
It's National Day today! The fireworks were off last night and tonight as well. This pretty flower (not sure what it is though) resembles fireworks of sort. It time to wish all fans of Wild Lives Singapore and everyone else a Happy National Day. Hope there will be more people getting into making wild lives Singapore a part of their lives. Ria and company has gone into great lengths to show us all Singaporeans that our natural heritage is indeed rich, lively, and striving. Let's all continue to preserve this rich natural heritage for many more generations of Singaporeans. (:> Yman)

commenting on mms upload on Sekudu field trip
Is this Singapore? Looks like a segment the Stonehedge at Salisbury Plain, England. Tiny Singapore certainly is not lacking in natural and historical heritage beyond those in the museums and Fort Caning areas. If we look hard enough and search further into the remaining wild areas , who knows what else we might find. Perhaps, more living artefacts that will certainly the heighten efforts of nature heritage conservation groups like Wild Singapore. (:> Yman).

Hi Ria, no words can say my appreciation of your tireless effort to protect wild places in tiny Singapore. Keep up the excellent work!

commenting on Mindy's efforts for the Labrador Park Watch programme
Thanks for bringing up the subject, Ria...Hope now people would know it is harmful to collect anything from the Labrador beach. Singapore is a better place with a person like Mindy, keep it up!

wow i thought Pulau Hantu (Ghost Island) is scary but it seemed like it is filled with the wonders of the Sea! it is so beautiful!
Posted by cleverbest Posted on 01/08/04 23:13
so many updated information..i reallty enjoy reading them...help me gain more general knowledge too!
Posted by yman Posted on 28/07/04 18:10
Ria, seems like you are still stuck in the jam since this morning. Only one photo since 08:24am? Most unsually, considering the onslaught of moblogs over the past few weeks. I hope it is your camera that went kaput, but not the "Blog for a cause" enthusiasm. It is still three two weeks to National Day. I am sure there's still plenty of grounds to moblog about. Well, I hope more people will come on and cheer you along. Actually, it had cross my mind whether the Moblog organisers had considered allowing multiple moblog contributors. That way the load can be shared, and more grounds can be covered. Hosts Phlilp and Sara, are you connected? (:> Yman)

Great job with the MMS! Really brings nature closer!
Posted by wangza Posted on 22/07/04 23:02
thank you for featuring Jen Lee. I've heard her and i really am inspired too...i like the way she uses photography as a tool to share with the world the way she sees the world. And the inter-connectedness that she sees between persons and the nature is really as it is now: at its most fragile... Tho there is a part we all play in it, a part that we can contribute in...There is so much passion in her... and yes... i feel for her cause...

By using the internet to share pictures and insights about the natural world, Ria's blog not only amazes us with nature, but gives us opportunities to network with others - this is community-building at it's best!
Posted by EckKheng Posted on 21/07/04 13:01
Hi Ria, Where in Singapore is this? I am a follwer of you blog. I open it before I check on mine. I hope you will be able to migrate all the material to a website when the blogging ends.
Posted by HostSara Posted on 18/07/04 01:33

putting in a little note in a little effort to save our little islands from further reclamation. there is so little that we know about what we have in our seas.
Posted by lindy Posted on 17/07/04 18:31
Wow, didn't know singapore has such spectacular natural life to offer! Have to start exploring it now ;) Ria, thank you very much for the effort. Hope you will be able to raise enough fund for the Southern Island conservation project soon!

Am posting a comment here in support of your cause and in respect of yours and all your volunteers' passion for what you do and believe in. Salut!

Your effervescent spirit and infectious laughter certainly defy all notions about conservationists and biologists being nerdy creatures! My colleagues and I at the Museum are all excited to sign up for the nature trails listed on your wild lives site. We mostly have backpacked, trekked and hiked to places all over the world and never realize there are actually much to see and do within Singapore's shores, and at very little cost too. Thank you for all your efforts in preserving and promoting the wonderful "little creatures" of Singapore.
