Contest Issue 14

We have attractive prizes to give away in this issue! Just take part in these simple contests, and you could be a lucky winner.

Caterpillars of Singapore’s Butterflies and Our Fragile Rainforest



These two books highlight the wide variety of biodiversity that can be found in our tiny island. Caterpillars of Singapore’s Butterflies feature 80 early stages of commonly-seen butterfly species, and follows their development from egg to caterpillar to pupa. The book aims to get Singaporeans to view caterpillars differently – that they are not pests but are vital for the continued existence of their prettier adult forms.

From 2008 to 2010, an ecological survey was conducted in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve to determine the relative health of its inhabitants, and find out which native species could be vulnerable to the longer effects of climate change at the local level. Our Fragile Rainforest is a compilation of some of the findings from this research.

Two sets of books (consisting of Caterpillars of Singapore’s Butterflies and Our Fragile Rainforest) will be given away. All you have to do is answer the following two questions correctly.

1)How many caterpillars are featured in the book Caterpillars of Singapore’s Butterflies?
2)Where was the ecological survey conducted that was featured in Our Fragile Rainforest?
