found in Siglap in 1883. Thanks to the awesome guided tours by the volunteers, this and our other animals may also become the favourites of our kids.
Dr Daphne Fautin recently gave a public lecture and shared lots of info about this relationship.
Grace Chua's recent article in the Straits Times about Dr Daphne Fautin's work on sea anemones on Singapore. The visitors are fascinated.
Open House is still on tomorrow 9am-5pm.
We are all looking forward to more space to showcase more biodiversity and do more activities with kids, families, students and the general public. Our dreams will come true with the new museum building!
Currently, the public can glimpse only less than 1% of the total collection of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, at its tiny but well-loved public gallery. The new Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum will have 10 times the current museum's size devoted to exhibition space, as well as more classroom and activity space.
You CAN make a difference for the new museum!
Funds are still needed to make this museum a reality. A website has been launched to accept donations from the public. Your gift will help to create a museum that we all can be proud of! You can donate online, by cheque or call 6516-5082 to make donations in cash or other gifts.
