Festival of Biodiversity 2013!

It's time for the Festival of Biodiversity!

I'll be busy volunteering at the Marine Exhibition, but if you really can't make it to VivoCity this weekend, or are not in Singapore, do look out for tweets from myself (@Varanussalvator) and others, via the hashtag #FestBiodSG.

Do you know that Singapore is home to more than 400 species of marine fishes? Do you know that Singapore is also home to 250 species of hard corals, which is almost one third of the diversity found in the world? Do you know that species such as the horseshoe crab and the banded leaf monkey can be found in Singapore? Join us at the festival to explore and learn more about Singapore's rich biodiversity!

Join us in the many exciting activities we have in store for you at the festival, and find out how you can play a part in conserving our biodiversity. By participating in the festival, you can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Singapore's rich biodiversity, its benefits, and relevance to us in Singapore.

Some of the highlights include exhibitions about Singapore's natural heritage, as well as one dedicated to the native snakes of Singapore (it being the Year of the Snake and all), storytelling sessions, and art & craft workshops.
