At the heart of Singapore, the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is vital to the sustenance of biodiversity in this region, housing over 840 species of flowering plants and over 500 species of fauna. It is also where Singapore residents can get away and be immersed in the beautiful nature.
“Bukit Timah Nature Reserve Visitor Centre give visitors a glimpse of what this wonderful nature reserve has to offer and to provide advice on how to enjoy the visit while preserving the natural habitat.”
The visitor centre is filled with interactive, fun facts and games that can keep both naturalist and novice occupied for a long time. A 3D relief model of the Bukit Timah Hill welcomes visitors as they ascend up the stairs of this conserved “black and white” colonial house.
A glass enclosure housing the taxidermy of the legendary Bukit Timah Tiger is located at the centre of the space. Walking around this central exhibit, visitors can learn about the plants, animals, and conservation initiatives related to the nature reserve.
During your visit to the nature reserve, you might have spotted an interesting plant. Feeling intrigue? Use the “Tree Spotting” interactive to access a wealth of plant information. Plants can be easily identified through characteristics like “bark”, “leaf”, “flowers” or “fruits”.
The nature reserve is also home to many native animals. You only have to look harder to find them. Try your hands on the “Animal Spotting” game and see if you have a great eye-sight for hidden animals. Through interactive quizzes, you can learn about how you can play a part in conserving the nature reserve too!
