Wild City reveals hidden treasures of local ecosystem

I was amazed by the first episode of the programme Wild City, which aired on Channel NewsAsia on Sunday and was narrated by natural history legend David Attenborough. (“Getting wild in the city”; March 3)

It revealed the hidden treasures in our Lion City’s ecosystem, and the rich biodiversity was unexpected, with impressive video photography and good captions. More importantly, there were three key takeaways for our young.

First, do not feed the animals, especially where wildlife gather, such as the wild boars in Pulau Ubin.

Second, protect our wildlife by not littering on land or sea. A discarded rubber band or fishing net, for example, can choke a duck or an eagle.

Third, expand our knowledge of animal adaptation and survival behaviour in a particular habitat. It correlates with how humans also struggle for shelter and to make ends meet in daily life.

This stimulating programme will definitely become part of our natural history, especially for younger generations, for years to come.

I will never say we are only a little red dot again.

Personally, this is the best SG50 showcase I have seen so far.

I hope the two-part series, which will continue this Sunday, can have more episodes about more unexplored wonders of nature in Singapore.
