Singapore is well known as a "Garden City", but there is another "garden" that most people do not see that exists just off shore.

Mr Jeffrey Low shares about Singapore's coastal and marine habitats, that still holds many surprises for the intrepid explorer.
From spineless, spiny creatures to backboned, shelled air breathers, there is a bounty of the weird and wonderful awaiting the urbanite that dares venture the confines of the concrete jungle.
In recent years, a small but growing number of conservationists have been using digital age tools to further the cause of conservation in Singapore. Armed with multi-tasking cameras and the ability to wake at pre-dawn hours, they recount their mini-expeditions to unknown shores through the use of blogs and other internet media, providing a rich tapestry of stories about their encounters.
As nature-starved Singaporeans begin to appreciate their own natural heritage, the opportunities for discovery and positive action abound, from the shores of the mainland to the islands south of Singapore.
The talk is free and no pre-registration is required.
