Get your feet wet and learn about hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, swimmer crabs, sand dollars and many other amazing animals in our own backyard!

Sungei Buloh Mangrove Exploration (Terrestrial walk)
Bring your family/friends to the Mangrove forest of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves, where they will get up close to the biodiversity of the animals and plants of the Mangrove ecosystem! You may get to see animals such as mudskippers, monitor lizards, tree climbing crabs, kingfishers, crocodiles and many more mangrove inhabitants! Note that although you will not be walking in the water, you may get specks of mud on your feet!

Coney Island Rustic Shore (Intertidal Walk)
Did you know that Singapore's Coney Island has a wide variety of biodiversity in the intertidal area? Join us as we explore the rustic shores of Coney Island's beach! Home to interesting flora and fauna such as leaf potter crabs, onch slugs, horseshoe crabs, seastars, many species of anemones, and more!
*This programme is recommended for children 5 years old and above (due to long walking distance!)
Pasir Ris Intertidal Walk (Intertidal Walk)
Have you been to the long stretch of narrow beach at the serene Pasir Ris Park?
“Pasir Ris” itself means “Beach bolt rope”, and on the intertidal zone of this long rope-like beach, lies an amazing biodiversity of bustling wildlife!
Catch the low tide timing with Young Nautilus, to trace the variety of charming Sea Stars, colourful Flatworms and hasty Crabs as they climb around the patch of intertidal Seagrass. When lady luck smiles upon us, we may even spot the elusive Seagrass Octopus!
*This programme is recommended for children 5 years old and above (due to muddy shore)!
Punggol Promenade Pebbly Patrol (Intertidal Walk)
Our Coney Island Rustic Exploration covers the amazing Casuarina Forest and the biodiversity on land, our Punggol Promenade Pebbly Patrol dives straight into the intertidal zone! Here we get to enjoy a more marine-centric adventure with the beautiful scenery of Coney Island! It is also here where we encountered the intriguing toadfish and other organisms like the snapping shrimps, sea sponge, Thunder Crab and sea stars!
Changi Seagrass (Intertidal walk)
Are you ready for the challenge to look out for exhilarating treasures with us among the Seagrass habitat! Although this area is near to our Changi Intertidal Walk, the biodiversity is vastly different. Hiding among the seagrass are animals like scorpion fish, seahorses, pipefishes, sea stars, flatworms, sea slugs and many more delicate marine lives!
*NEW* Pasir Ris Mangrove Walk (Terrestrial walk)

Ever wondered what Labrador Nature Reserve could offer apart from the scenic coastline and lush greenery? You can descend the slippery boulders of Singapore’s LAST natural rocky shores to “forage” for signs of wildlife!
