Act for Nature 2020: Ideas Welcome!

Overview

Have other ideas for an Act for Nature (AFN)? We’d love to hear them! Your proposed activity should:

  • Have clear relevance to local biodiversity (i.e. involve local biodiversity species)
  • Demonstrate a personal contribution to local biodiversity conservation
  • Engage others (in person or virtually) and encourage them to contribute to local biodiversity conservation

You could survey biodiversity in your garden with your family using the SGBioAtlas app, or create a game for your friends to teach them about intertidal species. We’re excited to see what you come up with!
