About this site

The site is set up for a layman introduction to our more common marine life.

It also hopes to help nature guides in their work, with a special section for nature guides.

This site is an 'upgrade' of the Chek Jawa online guide that was launched in 2003 to support the Chek Jawa guidebook. That online guide was set up to include all the information and photos that could not fit into the guidebook.

Since then, I have been visiting many other other shores and have been amazed by the rich shorelife. In preparation for a broader guidebook to all our shores, I have set up the new Wild FactSheets online guide to showcase Singapore's shorelife. It is a work in progress and pages will be continuously added and updated.

The focus is on marinelife on the intertidal. But hopefully, as I have more time and information, I hope to add factsheets about our other wild stuff, subtidal and terrestrial.
