Unleash your inner scientist and join us in a race organised as part of the NParks Community in Nature (CIN) Biodiversity Watch, to identify and count as many plants and animals that you can find in a park or nature reserve.
The intensive biodiversity activity, BioBlitz, also provides the opportunity for members of the public to work alongside volunteer scientists.
What you discover will help us understand our local biodiversity better. Who knows, you may even spot a previously undocumented plant or animal species living right in your backyard!
Nationwide BioBlitz cum Habitat Enhancement 2018
As part of Biodiversity Week 2018, which was held in conjunction with the International Day for Biological Diversity, Nationwide BioBlitz cum Habitat Enhancement 2018 was held from 18 to 30 May 2018, from 8am to 12pm in 33 parks and gardens across Singapore. On each of the thirteen days, participants led by NParks guides and volunteers conducted biodiversity surveys in different parks and gardens. The results of the Nationwide BioBlitz are crucial in facilitating habitat enhancement works and conservation efforts for Singapore’s biodiversity.
