The Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve is a nature reserve located in the northwest of Singapore. In 2002, it was the first wetlands reserve to be designated in Singapore and its global importance as a stop-over point for migratory birds was recognized by its international’s inclusion in the East Asian Australasian Shorebird Site Network. In 2003, it was also listed as an ASEAN Heritage Park.
The masterplan aims to anchor Sungei Buloh‘s position in international nature conservation while still meeting the local recreational needs of Singaporeans. The masterplan defines a spatial strategy which protects an inner core. A sustainably designed activities loop with interactive and educational stations lets local people experience this outstanding natural environment while still conserving the site’s sensitive, natural characteristics. The masterplan also looks beyond the site itself, identifying future possibilities for a linked nature network beyond the Sungei Buloh area.
The Sungei Buloh Wetland Park helps make Singapore a great place to live and is an attractive global destination showcasing the reserve’s rich biodiversity.
