  wild people: Isaac Goh

As with many other nature lovers, Chek Jawa brought Isaac and me together. It started with email exchanges, then chance encounters on Chek Jawa itself.

Isaac also explored other shores with us. His enthusiasm for nature is infectious and it is a joy to be outdoors with him.
Isaac is a very special part of wildsingapore because of his generous web support for our work. He and archerlogic have been invaluable in providing the massive space and patient support for the companion website to the Chek Jawa guidebook. The site eventually ballooned into what it is today, and Isaac is still there to keep it going.

wildsingapore.com would not be here without him. Thank you Isaac!

Here is more about Isaac in his own words ...

How did you first get involved in working for nature in Singapore?
It all started from my lone ranger trips to Pulau Ubin. It was love at first sight with Ubin. Subsequently, I explored other interesting corners of Singapore. At one period of time, I spent almost every weekend at Ubin or other nature areas. I have alot of interest in the local history too. Henceforth, other than green areas, I frequent places, buildings or events that are related to either the nature or heritage of Singapore.

What do you get out of working for nature?
I tend to appreciate things in life more and as homo sapiens, we are part of this Earth and are as vulnerable as any other beings.

What is your approach/personal motto in your work?
Respect and treasure our heritage.

What are some of your current projects?
Basically, I take picture of several corners of Singapore, be it scenes, wildlife, buildings, landscapes. Our country is always changing. Just within 24 hours, something is disappearing from our neighbourhood. I hope both the photos and my memory can record these moments. And I collect any interesting artefacts which are related to our country. These includes Straits Settlement postcards of our country as early as 1905 till WW2 artefacts. From the old images or an old map, we can see how much changes have our country gone through.

We are part of the Nature. By ripping off our Nature inch by inch, yard by yard, we are destroying both our habitat and heritage. Through learning how to co-exist with our Nature, then we are truly a civilisation that has advanced over the centuries.

Isaac's day job is handling business development in an IT firm. You can contact him at isaac.goh@archerlogic.com
