Butterfly trail at Orchard

Butterfly trail at Orchard

BEFORE butterflies can move into Orchard Road and transform it into an urban butterfly trail, their homes will have to be built - or rather planted.

The first phase of the Butterfly Trail at Orchard project yesterday had Professor Tommy Koh, Ambassador-at-Large with the Foreign Affairs Ministry and patron of the Nature Society of Singapore (NSS), and other guests sowing the seeds of host and nectar plants at a site along Nassim Road. The plants will provide food and shelter to caterpillars and butterflies.

More than 900 shrubs and trees will be planted on the 170 sq m plot.

The project, spearheaded by NSS, will cover a 4km stretch of the shopping belt from the Botanic Gardens to Fort Canning. NSS experts hope to draw about 50 butterfly species to the area once the trail is completed by the end of next year. NSS estimates the project will cost $400,000.

The plants may also help in times of heavy rain, said former NSS president Geh Min. 'Trees and plants... slow down the rain and help the soil absorb it, so it is released more slowly and in lesser quantity to the drainage system,' she said.

Re: Butterfly trail at Orchard

Will it work since it's in a highly urbanised area?
