Singapore, by virtue of its geographical location, has rich biodiversity, in spite of its intense urbanisation. Dryland tropical rainforests, mangroves and coral ecosystems are some of the key habitats found in Singapore.
The National Parks Board has established the National Biodiversity Centre (NBC) as the focal point for biodiversity conservation. As the one-stop centre for information on indigenous biodiversity of Singapore, the Biodiversity webpages aims to enhance dissemination and making biodiversity information on Singapore more readily available and accessible. This website also serves as the Singapore's Clearing-house Mechanism to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
