The participants planted a variety of native plant species that would encourage animals to use the crossing. The desired outcome is a multi-layered forest structure that provides vegetation cover for shy, forest-dependent animals to move across the landscape. Fruit and flowering trees would also help to facilitate the movement of small and large birds.
“The opportunity to lay the final touches at Mandai, a key partner of Panasonic, provided me and the team with more insights about nature and growing a forest. We were astounded by the lengths that the team has gone into developing the new Mandai Wildlife Precinct. I’m confident that it will benefit both visitors and wildlife,” said Yoshinori Yamana, Managing Director of Panasonic System Solutions Asia Pacific.
Gary Tan, Head of Business Development of Panasonic System Solutions Asia Pacific, added, “Personally, it has been an absolute pleasure and experience to be part of the entourage. Most notable was the briefing sessions prior to the actual tree-planting, which certainly was an eye-opener in terms of the extent that Mandai has taken, with regards to being socially responsible.”
