About Wildlings

 

Wildlings is one of the first providers of environmental education and nature-themed services outside of the National Parks Service in Singapore. We operate our flag-ship Forest School programme and hands-on nature excursions. We have ambitious plans to expand our programmes through 2020 and beyond, developing our programmes for schools, clubs, and our nature-themed events, workshops and birthday parties.

 

We value nature itself and its contribution to our survival and wellbeing, meaningful time spent in the natural environment, the intrinsic connection between nature and people, the right of children to have a say in their own learning, and their right to play outside every single day.

 

We currently operate out of Singapore’s beautiful natural spaces such as Bukit Batok Nature Park, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, Pulau Ubin, and Labrador Nature Park.
