Words to Donors


Under the influence of globalization, people of different countries are getting closer and closer, even North Korea is reforming and sending students to go aboard. To make advancement, we must always compare ourselves with and learn from the others. This trip to Singapore familiarized me with the landscape and ecology of Singapore. More importantly, I knew how Singaporeans make good use of every small area and turn them into the green one, and also how people of different languages, customs and origins can get along and cooperate to contribute to the success of Singapore.

First, I would like to express my gratitude on your generosity and your donation. Without your donations, this trip may not be possible.

Further, I want to let you know that this definitely is a fruitful and eye-opening trip for me. I have learnt so much about conservation, culture and development of a city that share so many similarities with Hong Kong. I also build up the interest in watching birds after seeing stunning birds in Singapore. Although I wish the trip to be longer so that we could have more time to spend on each place we have visited, but this trip was rewarding for sure.

If possible, I would like to participate in this type of fieldtrip again in the near future. I believe other students are on the same ground worth me on this! Thank you again for making this trip possible!




Thank you - all generous donors - for making this trip possible!

Fruitful, beautiful and wonderful are certainly words to describe the five days in Singapore.

From conservational sites to botanic gardens, it is exciting that a wide range of flora and fauna were observed (Photos 1-3).

Endemic Kopsia singapurensis at Imbiah Nature Trail, Tembusu tree (Fagraea fragrans) at the MacRitchie Reservoir, and orchids at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, to name just a few. Such floral diversity (Photos 1-2) and the promising abundance of wildlife (Photo 3) wowed every student.

This 5 day-journey is definitely rewarding.

Thank you, donors! We have learnt much during this trip. This is a really good chance to us to appreciate the nature and broaden our horizons. Singapore is wonderful place. Living in Hong Kong, we have never seen tropical rainforest. How it looks like? What animals and plants can be found in there? How tall are the trees? If you don't see them by your own eyes, you never have the chance to feel how awesome they are! I am interested in plants and animals after the trip so I bought some books about them in the book fairs~ During the trip, I also thought of our impacts to nature. How human destroy the beautiful forest? What did we do? Also, how can we protect our nature? First, we should increase our knowledge of species. Knowing can decrease the distance between us and nature. Let's read more books of Biology~~

Without donors, we would not have this great experience to feel the nature! Thanks, thanks, thanks, donors~
