"From the window of my high-rise flat, I can see several green spaces. One of them is a small and lush green island bordered by several roads, and further away, a larger secondary forest. During Singapore's Covid-19 lockdown, I spent a lot of time looking at them.
In December 2020, the secondary forest started being cleared. At around the same time, I spotted a wild boar in the green island building a nest, preparing to give birth. She must have been evicted from the secondary forest, and her journey to her new home would have involved crossing several roads. In the end, this mother pig gave birth to six piglets.
The secondary forest is now mostly gone. In the green island, I occasionally see the odd wild boar surfacing from the sides of the greenery." – Robert Zhao Renhui
