Marine talks this weekend: 9-10 Jul

I'll be giving a talk about our shores this Sunday!

"Secret shores of Singapore" by Ria Tan
10 Jul (Sun) 2-3pm
Library of Botany & Horticulture
(Level 1, Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens)
Celebrating National Day on Cyrene!
No need to swim, no need to dive! Ordinary people can experience much of Singapore's amazing marine life on the intertidal shore. Otters, wild dolphins, sea turtles! Nemos, sea snakes, living corals and more. From accessible shores like Changi and Tanah Merah, to our many huge submerged reefs. I hope to share photos and stories of recent adventures on our living shores. How can we visit our shores? Are there special shore events for kids? And find out how you CAN make a difference for our little-known shores!

This talk is part of NPark's “Forests, People, Environment” Exhibition which runs until 24 Jul at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

I'll be giving a repeat of this talk on 23 Jul (Sat), 11am-12noon at the Function Room (Level 2, Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens)
