18 Nov (Sat): "The Gardeners of our Forests (A Civet's Tale)" on Sentosa

The common palm civet is one of our last wild native urban carnivorans, yet little is known about these nocturnal fruit bandits. How has this species managed to survive urbanisation? What is their role in the ecosystem? Tze Kwan will share with you the secrets of the common palm civet such as their habitats, activity, behaviour and diet.
Take a short walk around Sentosa Nature Discovery with us and find clues to the interesting creatures on the island!

About the speaker: Fung Tze Kwan has been involved in common palm civet research, conservation and outreach since 2010. She graduated with a Master of Science (Biology) from the National University of Singapore studying the diet, home range and seed dispersal abilities of the common palm civets in Singapore.

in collaboration with the Nature Society (Singapore)
Flowering plants (angiosperms) are the largest plant group today. Some of these plants are known to have a close relationship with animals and rely on them to help with the pollination process and seed dispersal for the continuation of life and survival. This special group of animals is commonly known as the pollinators or seed dispersers. Be wowed by the amazing snapshots at this photography exhibition and learn about the important animals that ensure LIFE GOES ON...
