Day 4—Grace Tan Soo Woon

At the Can Gio Biosphere, I learnt the importance of saving the environment and the need of increasing the number of trees. Through the physical experience of planting the mangrove shoots, I learnt how hard the workers have to work to plant such shoots to save the earth.
From the trip to the house of a villager I learnt how hard it is to earn a living in rural areas and how hard it is to earn money from farming shrimp and taking care of part of the forest.
Lastly, I learnt that everyone has to play their part in taking care of the Earth and through the visit to the house of the villager who seemed happy even though his family was living in a kampong like area with resources barely enough to support the family I learnt to be grateful for what I already have and know that I am lucky to live in a developed country like Singapore.
