President Tony Tan visited the Festival and we take the opportunity to share about the important aspects of our biodiversity. Marcus Chua took the opportunity to show the President "a leopard cat kitten who was born last year and then explained to him why we're concerned about the possible impacts of the CRL (Cross Island Line)." as Marcus explained on facebook.
TeamSeagrass and with Airani who shared about International Coastal Cleanup Singapore.

facebook: "Met a 7 year old version of me at the Festival of Biodiversity today! Was derping around when suddenly this boy shouted "tarantula!" in reference to the spider mascot on my shoulder. He then went on to tell me he liked insects, the conversation soon descended into technobabble about arachnids.
"He then put his backpack down, and pulled out a DK guide to bugs, and we spent the next ten minutes going poring over the thing from cover to blurb. Amazing, amazing stuff. Really hope this boy never loses his passion, and that our paths may cross again in the future, maybe out in the field." I'm sure the young visitor will grow up to be just like Sean!
This child made his father drive him down all the way from Pasir Ris for the Festival. His mother learnt about the Festival from the internet, he said.
Volunteers of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, the Toddycats are a great hit as they share fascinating stories about awesome creatures still found in Singapore today! How long does it take for a trolley full of museum specimens to attract a crowd of kids?
