SINGAPORE: To bring nature closer to Singaporeans who prefer staying indoors, the National Parks Board (NParks) has installed special cameras within the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, as revealed on Saturday as part of Nparks' Earth Day celebrations.

Singaporeans can now see the animals in their natural habitat via four cameras.

Camera footage can be streamed to their computers or mobile phones through the NParks website. 

You can choose scenes to observe within the reserve, and if you are in luck, you might catch a glimpse otters frolicking in a pond, or migratory birds feeding on the wetlands.

Pre-recorded footage of animal action is also available at the website for the public to enjoy.

NParks said this is part of an effort to encourage people to have more encounters with nature. - CNA/ck
