让我们了解你要在乌敏岛看到什么样的红树林!

让我们了解你要在乌敏岛看到什么样的红树林!
Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative field trip
RUM (Restore Ubin’s Mangroves) 的会员即将协助大自然在乌敏岛废弃的水产养殖池塘回复红树林。通过调整池塘的深度,各种红树自然会在那些池塘里成长。


在我们回复乌敏岛的红树林之前,RUM 的会员想要问问看你们的意见。这样一来,回复过后的红树林会对你跟你的亲戚朋友有更大的意义。


RUM 是由科学家,非政府组织和乌敏岛村民在国家公园委员会 (NParks) 和李智陞部长支持下的社区志愿者活动。


你们对这项红树林回复活动的意见对 RUM 来说很重要。我们希望能够从整体上(生态,生物,社会和文化方面)回复乌敏岛的红树林。


通过这个网站你就可以告诉我们你想在乌敏岛看到和做些什么:https://tinyurl.com/restorationmangrove


谢谢你参与本次调查,你的回应将有助于使乌敏岛成为一个更好和舒适的地方!

Free mangrove walk with Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative
Volunteers of R.U.M. (Restore Ubin’s Mangroves) are about to give Mother Nature a hand to replant mangroves in abandoned aquaculture ponds at Pulau Ubin.

To design the restoration, volunteers of R.U.M. would like to ask what YOU would like to see and do in mangroves at Ubin. So that the restored mangroves will be meaningful to you, your family and friends.

It is important to R.U.M. that the community have a say in mangrove restoration. Our hope is to restore Ubin mangroves not just ecologically and biologically, but also socially and culturally.
