The streams of Bukit Kiara may not be very impressive size-wise, but they are teeming with life. Take the time to explore them, and you may find freshwater fishes, crustaceans, turtles, and even a clam.
Five non-native fish species were found at Bukit Kiara during a rapid survey conducted by FoBK in 2022:
- the Guppy
- a Mosquitofish
- a Tilapia
- Algae Suckermouth Catfish
Three of the five fish species above — the Guppy, Mosquitofish and Tilapia — are listed as invasive species on the Global Invasive Species Database maintained by the Invasive Species Specialist Group )ISSG) of the IUCN Species Survival Commission.
Two non-native species of freshwater prawn were also found:
- Red Cherry Shrimp
- Chinese Pond Mussel
This is a reminder to Bukit Kiara visitors to never release wild marine animals in the water ways of Bukit Kiara. Such alien species serve as a threat to the natural biodiversity of the park.
