Launched today, a wonderful exhibition about amazing biodiversity in Singapore. After our trip to Pulau Jong, Chay Hoon and I hurried over to catch the event.
I learnt that recent discoveries resulted in about 500 species of plants and animals are new to Singapore, with more than 100 species also new to science. Wow! The exhibition showcases some of this bewildering variety of biodiversity from Singapore! With lots of photos and interesting information, in easy-to-read posters.

A highlight of this event is the launch of Robin Ngiam's fabulous book "Dragonflies of our Parks and Gardens". Here is Robin with Prof Tommy Koh, looking at a poster of one of the dragonfly finds in Singapore.
