Hock Chuan decided to test a new photographic app in  Bukit Brown, inspiring words from Norman Cho:

We see… We experience… We touch… Lets hope our children and their children’s children can experience the same sights and sounds of Bukit Brown…

Bukit Brown beckons…

The area is very rich in birdlife with 91 species (resident & migratory) recorded so far. Among them are 13 nationally threatened species listed in The Singapore Red Data Book (RDB, 2008). This constitutes 23 % of the 56 of bird species listed there, and makes it a very important wildlife habitat. For some bird photos, look under HABITAT: FAUNA.

If you haven’t visited Bukit Brown, check out our public tours on our events page. We endeavour to share as many stories of our pioneers as we can uncover. We are a group of volunteers who bush-bash to look for the tombs of pioneers and research to find out more. Come join us! Bukit Brown: Heritage. Habitat. History.
