Did you know that frogs can simply absorb water through their skin? Did you know that the Racket-tailed Drongo can mimic the calls of other animals? Or that the Paradise Tree Snake can glide from tree to tree?
All these facts about our native biodiversity and more can be shared to your students if you invite NParks to do an assembly talk for your school. These assembly talks usually last about one hour, and are on the topics of conservation of our green spaces, our native biodiversity as well as the community and companion animals.
Wong Hoe Pang (Senior Executive/Community Engagement) explains to the students the importance of responsible pet ownership and civic-mindedness to community animals.
Alan Tan (Conservations Senior Manger/Pulau Ubin) talks about the rich diversity of flora and fauna that can be found on Pulau Ubin and the need to conserve them.
Exhibitions at Schools
We have three sets of exhibition panels that we loan out to schools, entitled "Singapore: Our City in a Garden", “People, Forest, Environment (International Year of the Forest)” and “Sharing our World with Pets”. The exhibition panels educate students on the importance of forests, not only to flora and fauna, but to people as well and how to can be considerate towards our pets, our community, and wildlife. They can be put up for display at indoor open spaces in your school, for your students to view during their breaks.
We recommend the "Singapore: Our City in a Garden" and “Sharing our World with Pets” panels for Primary levels and the "People, Forest, Environment (International Year of the Forest)" panels for Secondary levels. Each set comes with a total of eight exhibition panels.
We recommend the “Sharing our World with Pets” panels for Primary levels and each set comes with a total of two exhibition panels.
