Raffles Museum Toddycats at Singapore World Water Day @ Lor Halus Wetland (Sat 24 Mar 2012)

Be a part of the Raffles Museum Toddycats’ Exhibition Team this March! Join us on Saturday, 24th March 2012, as our team engages the public at the celebration of the Singapore World Water Day.

Singapore World Water Day will be commemorated over 13 Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters sites, Marina Barrage, and NEWater Visitors Centre on the same day. The excitement begins at Lorong Halus Wetland from 8am to 12pm, and the guest of honour for the event will be Deputy Prime Minister, Teo Chee Hean.

Raffles Museum Toddycats will showcase local freshwater and marine biodiversity. To name a few, do you know we have still have dugongs, crocodiles, dolphins and small-clawed otters in Singapore? We also have endemic freshwater crabs in our forest freshwater streams! In addition, we intend to interact with the public via other activities, such as a self-made magnetic board game (matching diet/habitat to animal) and wildlife 3D paper crafts (http://xinheritage.blogspot.com).

Toddycats will be having two shifts on Saturday 24 March 2012:

  • 0730 – 1000 Shift 1 (including booth set up)
  • 1000 – 1230 Shift 2 (including booth pack up)

What better way to spend a Saturday morning teaching about biodiversity than in the premises of nature itself? Come visit the Raffles Museum Toddycats! booth on the 24th March to learn more about Singapore’s aquatic biodiversity.

We will be bringing along our iconic dugong specimen!

Briefing and training
In preparation for this fun-filled event, a briefing and training session will be arranged on Thursday, 22 March 2012: 6.30pm @ DBS Lab 7 [Block S2, Level 3; map].
