This year, 10 participants from SP Environment Club have represented SP to participate in TICE Eco Camp 2009. TICE Eco Camp 2009 was another great success where participants have enjoyed themselves as well as gain valuable environmental knowledge.
Participants were divided to different groups to participate in various activities. They were given task to work on a scenario to save biodiversity in an imaginary island known as “Pulau Ecosia” on the first day, and presented their ideas on the third day of the camp. Each group brainstormed and contributed useful ideas through the knowledge they have gained.
One of the highlights of the camp was visit to Pulau Ubin, Chek Jawa. Participants woke up early in the morning to catch the low tide to get to see the great biodiversity and natural habitat such as hermit crabs, mudskippers, mangroves, etc. in Chek Jawa. After which, participants took up the challenge of identifying various biodiversity such as drills, barnacles, mangroves, hermit crabs, handicapped crabs, etc. This trip to Chek Jawa conveys important message in preserving the Mother Nature as well as appreciate the great biodiversity that we have. Participants all agreed that it was a fulfilling and fruitful trip.
Besides these, there were also eye-opening talks where participants gain useful environmental knowledge and engage in discussion; green challenge which is amazing green race, etc.
Through this camp, participants not only have fun, they also gain lots of useful knowledge as well as great friendship.
