A relentless champion for the environment and science, Prof Leo Tan will give a talk at U@live in April.

returning a hard coral that was dislodged into deeper waters.
I am always deeply inspired by Prof Leo Tan's talks. A veteran in raising awareness and protection for our shores, his relentless work for Labrador shore is one of his many stories that I wish could be more fully and widely shared.

Professor Leo Tan graduated in PhD in Science from NUS in 1974. Throughout a distinguished career in research, education and public service, Professor Tan has been a vocal advocate for the environmental cause. Indeed, many of his public policy initiatives have helped to define Singapore’s reputation as a Garden City. Professor Tan’s latest ventures include Project Semakau, a three-year research programme with the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, and the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, set to open in 2014 with Singapore’s very first permanent exhibit of dinosaur fossils. Being the former National Parks Board chairman and enthusiastic nature lover, he was also devoted to teach and impart knowledge to his students. Come discover what this pioneering environmentalist has to say about Singapore’s “green” future.

Special treat! There will be an Edmontosaurus femur on display! (I think that's a dinosaur bone!)

Here's more about Prof Leo Tan and some previous media articles about him.
