Triggered by a recent Straits Times article by Brady Barr, “Children are key to nature’s future“, Toddycat Sean Yap blogged about how his relationship with nature from a young age influenced who he is today – a person passionate about the natural world.
Sean detailed the nature-related events that shaped his life since preschool right up to the present. These sparked his passion for nature and an interest in insects. See if the essay resonates with you and gets you think about the influences in your life too.

Sean is currently pursuing research with ladybirds (Coccinellidae) with NParks’ National Biodiversity Centre. Send him your sighting records if you encouter any!
