Conserving Singapore’s Biodiversity

The Biodiversity exhibition  features a habitat map of Singapore and a series of eco-systems ranging from coastal (including our unique mangroves!) to forest eco-systems. The inhabitants are also prominently showcased: crabs, birds and more!

Library@West brings you a special guest from NParks who will just explain that to you!
Mr Robin Ngiam is a conservation practitioner at National Parks Board (NParks) and he will give a talk on Singapore’s biodiversity in general and how we are conserving it. 

His early career in NParks entailed biodiversity surveys and monitoring, habitat restoration and enhancement, Environmental Impact Assessment, and international engagement. Currently, he manages part of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve where he oversees operational work such as amenities maintenance, horticulture, legislation enforcement, research and outreach. 

As a conservation optimist, Robin believes humanity’s gradual awakening of environmental consciousness bodes well for this living planet.   

Come & pick up tips on how you too can do your part to conserve our natural heritage!

  Event date :   Wednesday, 2 August 2017
  Time :   11.00 am to 12.00 pm
        Venue :    Programme Zone, Library@West

If you are interested, please join us for a game of Animal Sudoku at 10.30 am before the commencement of the talk. All are welcome.
