Nature Society (Singapore) Code of Ethics for photographers

It's great to see so many people interested in photographing our wild places! But as the Nature Society (Singapore) puts it, sometimes, photographers are in danger of loving nature to death.

Even the littlest visitors are interested in photographing nature!
With this in mind, the Nature Society (Singapore) has come up with a code of ethics and conduct for photographers and for nature lovers. Read the Code and send in your feedback!

From the Nature Society (Singapore) website
In the past, there were only a handful of people exploring the plants and animals of Singapore. Their impact was limited. Today, with hundreds of folks regularly visiting our nature areas (land and sea), nature lovers have become capable of loving nature to death. With this in mind, a code of ethics and conduct is needed. This guide spells out how nature lovers should behave, so that our friends, children, and children's children, can continue to enjoy what little nature we still have

Read the draft of the full-length Code of Ethics for nature lovers and photographers here.

Should you have any feedback, please email to Goh Ter Yang at teryang@nss.org.sg. We hope to improve the draft before the Code of Ethics is approved during our Annual General Meeting.
