16 Oct (Sun): Conference on "Nature Conservation for a Sustainable Singapore" by Nature Society (Singapore)

It has been more than two years since the revised edition of “The Red Data Book” (2008) was published. This book highlights the endangered plants and wildlife in Singapore. The aim of this Nature Society’s conference is to provide a forum for conservation proponents and wildlife experts from all sectors of the community. Our speakers will address the status of Singapore’s biodiversity, and the effects of habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation on a range of flora and fauna, with a focus mainly on nature areas outside the Nature Reserves. They will also address the needs of species that have healthy numbers currently, but are vulnerable to disturbances. Appropriate ideas, plans and solutions that will help prevent or mitigate losses will be explored and analysed --- to ultimately save our remaining nature areas and their biodiversity. We invite you to discuss these topics and more with our experts. You will also get to meet our Guest-of-Honour and Immediate Past President Dr Geh Min.
