What's the wild news blog about?

The blog is a compilation of media and blog entries. About nature and the environment that might be of interest to Singaporeans.

The blog is updated daily. Drop by to find out what's the latest.

Or subscribe to the blog for regular updates by rss or email.

Other questions?

Where is the old wildsingapore website?!
Still there, no worries. The plan is for the website to host more static pages such as fact sheets. And the website will continue to grow, but not as rapidly as the daily wild stuff.

So where are all the daily updates of wild stuff?
There's a widget on the wildsingapore website homepage that displays all the updates from the following feeds:
This wild news blog
The wild happenings blog of nature and environmental events in Singapore
And the wildsingapore google reader of the very many blog entries about our wild places.

Why did I convert the website to blogs?
The wildsingapore website had so far been done by me alone. It was quite taxing to do daily website updates by hand in html and via ftp. I was spending 2-3 hours every day just doing this There were many times when I contemplated just giving it up altogether.

Hopefully, this arrangement will make it easier for me to sustain the effort. Also, with the blogs, anyone can also help with updating. In this way, wildsingapore can be more of a community effort! Which was not possible with the website.

With the change to a blog, you can now…

  • Subscribe to feeds of these blogs.
  • Download widgets of these and put them up on your own blog.
  • Make comments and discuss the entries.
The change also allows me…
  • To provide more instant updates via a web browser.
  • Since it's much easier to update on the blogs, a wider range of news, events and issues can be covered.
  • To invite others to help contribute, for a more vibrant and comprehensive coverage of wild issues and events.

This blog, as in everything else that I do, would not have been possible without the kindness, patience and generous sharing offered by many volunteers. Thank you all of you too!

    It is nice to see a blog devoted to environmental updates in Singapore and around the world.

    I will definitely be using the articles to bring about awareness on environmental conservation to my students.

    Great job!
