Fun with Primates at Thomson Nature Park

Date : 28 Aug 2022
Time : 8 am to 10.15 am
Location : Thomson Nature Park

Open to NSS Members Only - Registration Needed - Fully Vaccinated

Thomson Nature Park and its environs are home to the rare Raffles Banded Langur and the common Long-tailed Macaque. Join James Chua and Gloria Seow to learn about these primates: their lifestyle, diet, behaviour, ecology and how humans can peacefully co-exist with them. We hope to spot the langurs as they leap from tree to tree in search of succulent leaves, and observe families of macaques as they go about their monkey business. In between primates, we will also enjoy a general nature walk learning about the plants, insects, birds, herptiles and mammals we come across.
