Under the Wildlife Guardians category, families received a puzzle piece if they volunteer to help protect Singapore’s natural heritage. This can be done through activities such as ‘Operation No Release’ and ‘Forest Clean Up’.
In the CIN Ambassador category, families will receive a puzzle piece when they bring a friend to events such as the CIN Family Day.
The final category is SGBioAtlas Contributor. Under this category, families can collect a stamp when they submit sightings of local animals and plants that they spot in Singapore’s parks and nature reserves. This can done via the SGBioAtlas mobile app.
