Apart from taking time to participate in our festivities over the two days, there is plenty other things that YOU, as an individual, can do to help promote and safeguard our biodiversity!

Even if you’re not too keen on going out and exploring our natural heritage and sharing it with your friends, there are other things that you can do to help! Scientists often need to collect data on the subject of their study, and they are not always out on the field 24/7. This is where YOU come in!
When you’re out walking around (even if it’s down Orchard Road), if you happen to see particular animals or plants, please do RECORD YOUR SIGHTING and let the respective scientists know! Recording your sightings are important as these can go far in contributing to public awareness and education, research projects and supplementing research in conservation and management projects.

Apart from live animal sightings, dead animal sightings are also welcome!
To report a road kill, call the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research at 6516 5082 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A photo or description of the animal, its general condition and detailed location would be most useful.
