Singapore is an urban jungle, known for its hustle and bustle. But amidst our towering skyscrapers and modernity, we can marvel at a diversity of wildlife, sometimes right from our own backyard! In a tiny city state, how can we encourage people and animals to live in harmony?
Meet Cyrena, a Senior Manager at NParks’ Wildlife Management & Outreach Branch. As a Wildlife Educator, she engages people from all walks of life, about how to appreciate and interact responsibly with urban biodiversity.
