Tembusu Wildlife Association (tWild)

Led by a team of passionate individuals who champion for biodiversity, Tembusu Wildlife Association (tWild) seeks to critically engage Tembusians to discuss issues surrounding wildlife conservation in Singapore and other countries. Over the years, tWild has attained much success, partnering with local organisations like Seven Clean Seas, Nparks and overseas organisations like LAMAVE, holding multiple student teas, fundraising sessions and expeditions around Singapore and other parts of the world. tWild hopes to continue the legacy of wildlife conservation that has transcended through generations of dedicated Tembusu wildlife enthusiasts by educating Tembusians, as well as involving them in many other tWild conservation activities.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
