It’s an amazing world inside a freshwater habitat. Here live fantastic critters with fantastic capabilities.
Above a freshwater pond, colourful dragonflies chase mosquitoes while underwater their fierce aquatic babies ambush
tadpoles and small fish. Many other insects have adapted to a life underwater, such as the diving beetle and water scorpion.
Some like the water skater stay high and dry by living on the water’s surface.
Aquatic critters need unpolluted freshwater to complete their life cycles.
In this workshop, participants will learn about local freshwater habitats, who lives in them and what are their special adaptations,
followed by a guided visit to the freshwater ponds in the park.
To register, email NParks_HortPark@nparks.gov.sg. Please provide your name, contact number and number of participants. After which, payment has to be made by cheque by 10 June 2016.
