According to the National Parks Conservation Group director, trees are very vital in creating a lively environment. He maintained that trees are natural air filters that help to mitigate climate change.

Park authorities announced the development of the Sungei Buloh Park Network in the northern part of the island in August. Sungei Buloh features several different existing wetland habitats, and this includes mangroves and mudflats.
