Pang Sua Woodland: Sanctuary Unveiled Along the Rail Corridor


“Pang Sua Woodland: Sanctuary Unveiled Along the Rail Corridor” is a labour of love by volunteers of Cicada Tree Eco-Place and Nature Society (Singapore). Both organisations are ‘Friends of Rail Corridor’.

The book was inspired by NSS’ publication “The Green Rail Corridor” (2019) and is a collaboration between the two non-profit, non-governmental organisations dedicated to nature appreciation, education and natural heritage conservation.

Nestled between housing estates in Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang, Pang Sua Woodland is unassuming at first glance. Yet, this green oasis is a critical lifeline for both people and wildlife and should be preserved.

The woodland is a microcosm of Singapore and the world at large. Conserving small pockets of precious biodiversity and wild greenery is critical to solving the existential crisis facing all of humanity.

The book unveils a sanctuary hidden in plain sight along the northern stretch of the Rail Corridor, documented in beautiful prose and vibrant photography by volunteers.

Connecting past and present, the book also documents the rich heritage and communities of Bukit Panjang, articulating a biophilic vision for its development as a space for recreation and green connectivity.
