Talk on the Straw-Headed Bulbul on Pulau Ubin

Date: 16 November 2005, Wednesday
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: NSS office, The Sunflower
Organized by: Nature Society (Singapore)
Speaker: Dr Ho Hua Chew

The Straw-headed Bulbul is the most conspicuous and loudest bulbul on Pulau Ubin. The species is doing relatively well on the island. It is also a popular cagebird. Sadly, it has become endangered in many areas of its distribution range and is considered extinct in Thailand and Java where it was once common. It is now globally vulnerable. The talk focuses on its habitat requirements and the possibility of Pulau Ubin as a model protection area for this lively and bubbly species.

All are welcomed.
