Join us as volunteer educators at Festival of Biodiversity!

Come join us as educators at our outreach booth at this year’s Festival of Biodiversity! Using animal and trash specimens, we will be sharing with the public about Singapore’s marine life, issue of marine debris and what we as individuals can do to help combat the issue.

Every year, NParks and the Biodiversity Roundtable organise the Festival of Biodiversity to reach out to the community about the conservation of our wonderful natural heritage. This year, it will be held over the weekend of 25 and 26 May 2019 at the open space at HDB Hub Mall in Toa Payoh.

If you are keen to help us reach out to the many heartlanders and share about marine life and threat of marine debris, please join us by registering here and select the “Marine/ICCS & Marine Debris” option under stations you are interested in: https://tinyurl.com/toddycats-fob2019
However, if you are interested in learning and sharing about Singapore’s terrestrial or mangrove biodiversity, do feel free to select the other stations listed in the form.

Details of the festival:
Date: 25 and 26 May 2019 (Sat and Sun)
Venue: HDB Hub Mall at Toa Payoh
Time: 10.30 am to 10.30 pm (each shift is 3.5 hours)
