Singapore, with its tree-lined roads, hierarchy of parks, nature reserves and green spaces linked by park connectors, is an urban forest. Despite the highly urbanised environment and land constraints, there exists a good variety of biodiversity in Singapore.
Our progress in biodiversity conservation exists because of careful planning and relentless efforts in conserving our natural heritage through the years. Find out more about our natural heritage here.
Learn more about the different types of habitats that can be found around Singapore. These posters provide a range of useful information such as the description of each type of habitat, the unique flora and fauna that live in each habitat, and how these habitats can be conserved.

Despite being a small island, Singapore is home to a wide range of biodiversity. Sometimes, we may be unsure of how we should react when we come across certain creatures such as a wild boar or a snake when we are out and about. What we need to remember is that many wild animals would much rather not encounter us humans, and would only attack when provoked.
We hope our series of animal advisory posters will help you learn how to react should you ever have an animal encounter in Singapore. (Some of you may be looking at the list of animals advisory posters and are surprised that these creatures can be found in Singapore!)
