The Festival of Biodiversity 2014 has come to an end! A big thank you to all the people who contributed their time to share stories and information about the wild side of Singapore that not many people know about or appreciate. And of course, kudos to all the people who visited our booths and learn something about the natural splendours that can still be found in Singapore. See you again next year!
