BFF Challenge: Biodiversity BTS (behind-the-scenes)

Overview

You’ve learned about biodiversity – so what’s next? Find out at Biodiversity BTS (Behind-the-Scenes)! 

Beyond leading nature walks and doing research, there are many people working hard to make conservation work – policy makers, wildlife rescue volunteers, education groups. Who are they? How do they do it? And what does their work have to do with YOU?

Our young and wild ‘Youth Interrogators’ will chat with Dr Adrian Loo (Group Director of Conservation, NParks), N. Sivasothi aka Otterman (Senior Lecturer, NUS Dept of Biological Sciences), and Anbu Boopal (Deputy Chief Executive, ACRES) to get an insider’s view of conservation! 

This event is organised in conjunction with World Environment Day: https://www.worldenvironmentday.global
