15-17 Jul: More marine talks this weekend!

From our wild dolphins to migratory birds, dugongs and our seagrass meadows. Also a chance to catch the repeat of the talk on Singapore's marine biodiversity.
The bulk of these exciting talks are part of NPark's “Forests, People, Environment” Exhibition which runs until 24 Jul at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. But some of these talks are held separately. Don't miss them!


15 Jul (Fri): Talk on "Singapore's Wild Marine Mammals"
Join Cyrena Lim to learn how you can help the National University of Singapore (NUS) researchers discover more about Singapore's wild marine mammals. Pilot studies by the Tropical Marine Science Institute (TMSI) in NUS have confirmed that several species of coastal dolphins can be found in Singapore waters, even the rare Finless Porpoise and Dugong. TMSI has launched the Singapore Wild Marine Mammal Survey (SWiMMS), a research project where it wants to establish a volunteer network and sighting reporting system, as well as carry out field studies. Reliable observations from South-east Asia are also welcome, and will help TMSI study whether Singapore contributes to seasonal trans-national migration routes.

This talk is free and is open to the public.

Time: 8pm
Venue: The Sunflower (NSS office). 510 Geylang Road #02-05,Singapore 389466
