Sustainable Singapore balances building and Nature

Singapore's Forest Walk is part of their continuing success to green the island-nation

With a population of over 4.4 million, Singapore is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Known at various times throughout its history as The Little Red Dot, the Lion City, and the City in the Garden, this tropical island city-state covers less than 300 square miles, over ten percent of which is land reclaimed from the sea.

Juxtaposed to this crowded urban area is also over 2,000 plant varieties, 57 types of mammals, 98 types of reptiles, and 25 varieties of amphibians. Hundreds of bird and butterfly species migrate there each year and one-third of the world’s hard coral reefs are found in its surrounding waters. The natural diversity that is Singapore includes rainforests, freshwater swamp forests, mangrove forests, and coastal forests.
