The long wait is almost over! The first ever Festival of Biodiversity is happening this weekend, on 26 & 27 May 2012 at the Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens, from 9am to 6pm. The Raffles Museum Toddycats have spent a fruitful evening preparing hard for this event, and now it’s your chance to come down to show us your support and learn more about Singapore’s fascinating biodiversity!
If you still have no inkling of what to expect at the Festival of Biodiversity, this post will bring you a sneak preview of one of the most prominent and important exhibition booth – the Raffles Museum Toddycats booth! With a myriad of over 50 specimens on display, ranging from rarely-exhibited birds such as the collared kingfisher, barn owl and white-breasted waterhen to mammals such as the baby dugong, a pangolin and a taxidermized leopard cat, you will certainly be awed! Other interesting specimens such as the small-clawed otter, crabs and fishes will also come under the limelight during the festival.
The training session this evening has successfully equipped our volunteers with information on not only our specimens, but also on the general history of the Raffles Museum Toddycats! and other Toddycats activities, to better engage the public this weekend. So come on down to listen to what we have to share!
Besides our amazing array of specimens, there will be a line-up of exciting activities during the event, suitable for families and nature enthusiasts. Check out the Festival of Biodiversity blog and sneak video of “Singapore Got Wildlife, Meh?”. So what are you waiting for, do not miss out on this weekend’s nature bonanza! We look forward to seeing you at the Festival of Biodiversity!
