“Ecological observations in Singapore”

Last year, the ecology students penned blog posts, this semester, we’ve had them venture out to search for research topics, conduct observations and present their results at a symposium over two days. I had to figure out a workable schedule and this seems to be it:

Ecological Observations in Singapore -

Names and titles later. We are eagerly looking forward to the sessions by the pioneer batch.

The Ulu Pandan “bear”

Ulu Pandan bear

“Bear-like creature spotted along Ulu Pandan,” by Vimita Mohandas. ChannelNewsAsia, 12 Oct 2010: 2117 hrs.

“SINGAPORE: A bear-like creature was spotted along Ulu Pandan on Monday morning.

The strange scene was caught on an amateur video using a hand phone. Eyewitness Wilson Tay, a civil engineer, was driving home with his son when he spotted “something strange”. He said his son took the video when the creature was spotted near a dustbin.

By Mr Tay’s estimation, the bear was about the height of an average adult human being. It’s as yet unclear whether the creature is for real.

In a media release, Wildlife Reserves Singapore said no bears had been missing from its parks. Wildlife Reserve Singapore manages the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, Jurong Bird Park and the upcoming River Safari.

It added it was unable to verify yet, if the creature was a real bear.
