Fireflies are been seen in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. As SBWR is a mangrove habitat so i'm thinking if does mangrove & fireflies have any relationship? YES! Looks like the mangrove tree is the Sonneratia caseolaris.
Sonneratia caseolaris is a rare mangrove tree in Singapore, not sure about other country, how many are there in Singapore? This tree had been found in Woodlands Town Garden and it's about 10-15m tall! (link). We should try our best to save our mangroves and not let them to be gone from Singapore! Do you know that there are only 5% of mangroves left in Singapore!
Why are Sonneratia caseolaris rare in SG? Are the fruits hard to grow/survive?...............
To learn more about mangrove, you may visit one of our few nature reserve in Singapore which preserve mangroves- SBWR
