ASSESSMENT TASK 2: DESCRIPTION
The Marina Bay Garden and Marina Barrage is an attraction by itself. Singaporeans and
Internationals continue to throng this site. The garden boasts some special flora and fauna peculiar to
the tropics. The Marina Barrage that cuts across a 350 metre wide channel provides a pleasant view
of Singapore’s city skyline and water as an important resource for the island state.
On the field trip observe the way the park is managed and the type of leisure activities available.
Class sessions before the Field Trip will prepare students so you get the most out of your field
experiences. On our return, within our tutorials we will workshop several of the key issues/problems
for sustainable management of tourism and recreational use of the Island.
Students should keep a detailed field notebook on the day, and update and amend that notebook in
the days immediately following the field trip (while the experience is fresh in your mind). This practice
will help you in writing your field report. You will have several weeks after the field trip to choose two
key problems or issues that interest you and that you would like to further explore. You should then
seek about deepening your understanding of these two key problems/issues through further reading
and research, and write and submit a short (1500 words) individual written report on 3 January 2016.
As part of this report you need to include a 250 word reflection on your overall field trip learning
Field Trip Reports must be submitted to the Safe Assignment drop box on the subject site on
LearnJCU. Submission of a hard copy of the Report is also NOT required.
