Festival of Biodiversity 2016

A celebration of the community’s efforts to conserve Singapore’s natural heritage, the focus of this year’s Festival is on efforts to recover rare flora and fauna around Singapore. This is highlighted by exhibition display panels on Species Recovery and the Sisters’ Islands Marine Park at the Festival.

Beside the exhibition panels, be sure to visit the booths. At the booths, you can learn more about Singapore’s flora and fauna from those involved in their conservation. At OtterWatch, you can learn more about the two species of otters in Singapore. The Pangolin Story booth has posters about pangolins and the threats they face in Singapore.
