Pulau Ubin: Ours to Treasure
Author: Chua Ee Kiam
Only 10 minutes by boat from Singapore, Pulau Ubin is an island that offers visitors a glimpse into the remnants of the last remaining wildlife in an increasingly urbanised and over-planned society.
Synopsis: A labour of love spent over five years covering this island, where hornbills, sea eagles and flying lizards can still be easily spotted on a good bird-watching day. 250 quality illustrations capture the wildlife and village life that is fast disappearing. Dr Chua discusses the future of the island, and cogently argues why Pulau Ubin should remain largely undisturbed. This beautiful volume also contains checklists of plants, mammals and birds.
