In March, EFT headed to Sungai Menyala Edu Ecotourism Centre, a reserve covering 1,280 hectares of secondary rainforest, for a one-day trip with EPSOM college. The trip focused on teaching students all the skills they need to investigate a tropical rainforest’s biological health.

Once a war-torn country, Vietnam is now a booming economy, filled with rich history and culture. Ecofieldtrips recently led a group of 60 students from the Singapore International School (Hong Kong) on a one-week humanities field trip to the bustling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City and the rustic Mekong Delta region, studying the history, culture, and economy of this socialist country.
In February, Ecofieldtrips brought 20 Singapore American School students on an experiential and service trip to Flores and Komodo for 8 days where they walked with Komodo dragons and swam with manta rays, did an English language exchange at a local school, became trash heroes and restored ecosystems.
