Come say hi to NUS Toddycats! at FOB2022 (21-22 May 22, Botany Centre, SBG)

NUS Toddycats! are glad to be back in face to face action at the Festival of Biodiversity 2022!

The Festival of Biodiversity (FOB) is an annual biodiversity outreach event since 2012, by the National Parks Board in collaboration with the Biodiversity Roundtable. We are delighted to share stories with members of public curious about Singapore’s biodiversity during this event.

FOB2022 details:

  • Sat 21st & Sun 22nd May 2022
  • 9.00am – 6.00pm
  • Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens

The FOB2022 team warmed up with a visit to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve where we refreshed ourselves with encounters with the flora and fauna, all in the good company of new and old friends!

The indoor preparatory workshop was held at LKCNHM where it was lovely to meet up with the NUS Toddycats! team once again. Activities and specimens combined with guiding tips shared by seniors made the learning event active and enjoyable!

FOB2022 is our first face-to-face outreach for the public in two years, and our volunteers are raring to share stories of our local biodiversity specimens.

Curious about wildlife in Singapore? Visit FOB2022 and chat with us and the many other nature groups at Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens, 21 – 22 May, 2022!

Let’s SPA on 14th and 28th May 2022 at Kranji Coastal Nature Park!

NUS Toddycats will be undertaking Sapling Protection Action (SPA) at the Kranji Coastal Nature Park (KCNP) to give newly-planted saplings some tender loving care. This involves removing competing vegetation (on the branches and around the stem base), topping up approved soil mixture and leaf litter, staking the trees to help them stay upright until their trunks are strong enough; and replacing worn-out or lost tree identification tags.

We invite you to join us; registration is required.
