Registration closes 8 Dec!
Heron Watch is a citizen science initiative by NParks to get Singaporeans involved in collecting valuable information about the herons, egrets and bitterns across Singapore. With the data collected from many survey transects across various areas in Singapore, we can start piecing together information about where these birds are found and in what numbers! This information will contribute towards better park management and conservation measures.
For beginners, training workshops on bird identification and survey techniques will be organised on these dates:
- 10 Dec (Sun)
- 16 Dec (Sat)
- 17 Dec (Sun)
Heron Watch will be held on 13-21 Jan 2018.
Participants will only need to conduct the survey on one of the mornings during this period.
You will be assigned a survey site closer to the date of the survey. These are the survey sites.
- North (e.g. Woodlands, Admiralty, Yishun)
- North-east (e.g. Punggol, Sengkang)
- South (e.g. Downtown, Kent Ridge, Tiong Bahru)
- East (e.g. East Coast, Tampines)
- West (e.g. Jurong, West Coast, Bukit Batok)
- Central (e.g. Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Toa Payoh)
Community and school groups of more than 20 people interested in surveying multiple sites please email CIN@NParks.gov.sg to schedule a private training session.
