Toddycats @ Envirofest’08 (Sat 28 Jun & Sun 29 Jun)

The Toddycats Public Exhibition team are setting up a booth during Envirofest’08. It will be held at the Amphitheatre area of Toa Payoh Centre, in front of Toa Payoh Community Library from 11am-8pm on 28 and 29 June 2008 (Sat and Sun).

The event is expected to draw a crowd of some 5,000 – 6,000 visitors.
Help at the booth is sorely needed, so please sign up for
a 3-hour shift at

You can invite friends to sign up for duty too; they can learn some stories on the spot!

The team on duty there will talk about the animal exhibits and posters we have on display like the Dugong, Pangolin, Turtle, mudskippers, horseshoe crabs, coastal cleanup, pedal ubin etc. We will inform the public about Singapore’s natural heritage and introduce them to some of the activities we conduct as well as webpages where they can learn more about activities conducted by all groups in Singapore.

Guides from our various projects are invited to sign up for duty to help out the main team – there are six 3-hour slots over the two days to sign up for. The stories from your respective projects will really entertain the crowds!

This event is at a good location at the Toa Payoh hub. People are are fascinated by the exhibits and stories so we usually are swamped and even when packing up have to keep talking! They don’t believe the exhibits are from Singapore or have misimpressions about some animals, so its a highly constructive session. Read about the 2006 session – we talked to lots of people and also caught with our friends from other groups there!

The other nature and environment groups will be there as well, including the Naked Hermit Crabs, Hantu Bloggers, NParks and Waterways Watch as well as the Animal Welfare groups. So you can catch up and get to know some similarly passionate friends from the community!
