  • Dragonflies Of Bishan Park

    Dragonflies Of Bishan Park

    Singapore is located in the middle of a geographical region that’s rich in dragonflies. Through a two-year survey from 2008-2010, NParks conducted an intensive survey of dragonflies in several parks all over Singapore, and found some parks to be exceptionally rich in dragonfly diversity. One of these is Bishan Park. Bishan Park contains three ponds, which harbour up to 33 species of dragonflies – almost a quarter of the 124 known species recorded from Singapore. In fact, most of the common Singapore dragonflies can be found in this park, especially in the lotus plant pond near Upper Thomson Road.
