  wild people: Low Kok Leong

I got to know Kok Leong when he signed up as a Chek Jawa volunteer guide. His child-like joy in exploring the shores is infectious, and his tours are a pleasant trip of exciting discoveries. It makes even "old-timers" like me see Chek Jawa with new eyes.

It was thus a great pleasure to have Kok Leong volunteer on the wildsingapore wildfilms team. He brings not only a strong back and keen eye, but also a delightful sense of humor that keeps us going through the most difficult of times. Tis a pity he has yet to develop strong resistance to sandfly bites :-) Hang in there Kok Leong...

Here is more about Kok Leong in his own words ...

How did you first get involved in working for nature in Singapore?
I met Victor Ow (fellow volunteer) through diving in Tioman. He is a volunteer guide in Chek Jawa and I was invited to Pulau Ubin.

What do you get out of working for nature?
I got to know lots of nice people who care about the nature. I may have missed seeing what the nature has to offer during my grandparent's or my parent's youth but I do hope to present what we can still see/find to our next generation.

What is your approach/personal motto in your work?
Do not take things for granted, for what you see today may no longer be here tomorrow.

What are some of your current projects?
I am currently a guide for Chek Jawa and am learning more every day about what it has. We are also documenting on animals/living things on our shores to create awareness about our beautiful shorelines and what they have to offer.

Kok Leong is 28, his day job is as a freight operations co-ordinator and he currently volunteers as a guide at Chek Jawa and in the wildsingapore wildfilms project.
More on how YOU can make a difference too...
