Follow the Tide- From mangroves to coral reefs, a showcase of our amazing marine life.
22 May is the International Day for Biological Diversity, an occasion designated by the United Nations to enhance the global understanding of biodiversity issues. This year’s theme is ‘Marine Biodiversity’ and the exhibition aims to bring Singapore’s amazing marine life to the people in our city. Hear Braulio Dias, Executive Secretary of the UNCBD talk about the stronger collective effort that is needed to face the challenges of the threats to our oceans.
To showcase our marvelous diversity of marine organisms, we have put together a Singapore marine biodiversity exhibition, which will be launched on 26 May at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and will continue to rove around various locations in Singapore for a year.
All the different marine habitats will be featured in this exhibition, namely:
- Sandy shores
- Rocky shores
- Coral flat
- Seagrass meadow
- Coral reef
- Open sea
There will also be a section focusing on the threats to our marine habitats, and to highlight the importance of our marine areas.
For those who love taking photos, there will also be photo booth stand-ups of our cute & charismatic marine creatures for you to pose with!
In addition, this exhibition will feature the groups who are involved in conservation and saving our shores! Look forward to learning more about our local marine biodiversity with them and what they do and how you can possibly participate and contribute too. The ‘blue groups’ involved are:
- Blue Water Volunteers
- Hantu Bloggers
- International Coastal Cleanup Singapore
- Mangrove Action Squad
- Mega Marine Survey
- Naked Hermit Crabs
- The Leaf Monkey Workshop
Come down for the event!
