Save the world/mellow yellow:

 The guide tells us what not to do.

 A yellow sign to advice  people what no to do. My brother Dr Henry Chan, Mr. WWF takes his son Jonathan, to appreciate nature at a young age. 6 years ago, Jonathan took me to the same place.

I had been very fortunate to be able to travel to an orang utan rehab area on Borneo and a lorikeet protected area, in Singapore. In fact, I love going to such areas more than shopping areas.

As we enter the orang utan area, the guide told us to make sure we don't leave behind plastic, lolly wrappers and tissues. They make the orang utans very sick if they pick them up.

Across the South China Sea, I arrive in Singapore in my favourite place, Jurong bird park. To my disappointment, some idiot had left a piece of tissue for the birds.

It's sad when people don't think about the animals and how litter can hurt them. Beautiful photos, though ... what fun to see these lovely creatures! Thanks for sharing!

Great shots! It;s good to see young people learning to appreciate Nature! Some people are going to litter, disobey signs, and be slobs, no matter what! Too bad! Wouldn't it be nice if everyone disposed of waste properly!!

The kid probably enjoyed the nature. Love it! ♥
