10-11 Apr 2009: Eco-Vacation Over Good Friday at Tanjung Sutera

Coconut tree climbing

Alvin organized a special family-oriented Eco-Vacation at Tanjung Sutera Nature Resort over Good Friday.

This trip was the first of the new Eco-Vacation Experiential Series under Stone Edge Experiential as part of our effort to help raise the eco-consciousness amongst fellow human beings.

Alvin climbing the coconut tree

We've seen how man and monkey climb coconut trees. Here, we actually experienced climbing one and we also learnt how to open up a coconut using a parang. Alvin and Jin devised a safe belay system based on rock climbing to allow anyone to try this kampong climbing art without any danger.

Eco-Guide Joe Lai

Uncle Joe Lai is an expert botanist and nature guide. He led us on an educational tour of the rocky shore and showed us many variety of plants, marine life and taught us about ecology, the ocean and the rocks. He also taught us about the importance of nature conservation.

We must all do our parts to help save Mother Earth and make good the vast range of damages human has inflicted upon our environment.

The consciousness in every soul is as vast and infinite as the ocean and the sky. We simply need to remember and evolve.
