Inscribed as the first and only Tropical Botanic Garden on UNESCO's World Heritage list, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is home to a rich variety of tropical trees, shrubs and vines. We shall explore primarily the Herb Garden and also the edge of the Eco Garden to look for a variety of butterfly species. Past visits have yielded sightings of the Rustic, often thought of as a forest species. But with the presence of its host plant in the garden, the Rustic is fairly easily seen here. Other commonly encountered butterflies include the Leopard, Plain Tiger, Common Mormon, Cycad Blue, Common Grass Yellow and Common Palmfly. Less common and significant butterflies encountered are the Common Rose, People’s Choice for National Butterfly of Singapore, and the Hoary Palmer, a medium size skipper butterfly with an exceptionally long proboscis.

Max. no. of Participants

Note: Size of the group is limited to 7, as the leader counts as one person.
