Many volunteers, raring to go!

20 June 2015 – In preparation for the massive outreach operation which is the Festival of Biodiversity @ Vivocity NUS Toddycats conducted a training session for exhibition guides at the Learning Lab @ Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. Specimens for the training were brought out and distributed to the various stations of Freshwater, Marine and Mangrove ecosystem, Herptiles, Mammals and Insects.

Once the more than 70 volunteers were present, Joelle Lai introduced volunteers to the Festival, our operational procedure and introduced the trainers.

Volunteers joined their station of interest and examined individual specimens, were taught how to share information about it with the general public queries and asked questions. Each volunteer was trained to handle two stations.

After a sumptuous lunch, volunteers tried speaking about a specimen each to the audience of fellow guides and received feedback from trainers about accuracy and technique.

Time to put what they learnt to the test.
