The first time we organised the Biodiversity of Singapore Symposium was in 2003 and many of us rallied to ensure the event a success. Then we partnered NParks in 2007 and four years later, once again, are working together with them to present an array of speakers to inform, enthuse and engage the community.
This time, “The Next Generation” surfaced during early discussion to identify speakers so that becamee the theme of symposium! There will be many new faces to get to know amongst the 21 speakers who will address education, research and management in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems of Singapore. A special session will deliver updates about the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum and the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP). Two teas during the symposium will set the scene for discussion with each other and with poster presenters.
The Biodiversity Crew are deeply involved, not just as organisers but in contributing speakers at every session. The tone and pace is suitable for the public and students and anyone with an interest in biodiversity in Singapore. It’ll be an event to remember and we’re all looking forward to it.
So see you at the symposium – register by 18th September 2011!
