With the end of 2017 just around the corner, this is a good time to reflect upon some of the year’s defining moments.

This past year, the St John’s Island Trail and revamped Sisters’ Islands Marine Park Public Gallery opened to nature lovers, the Community Garden Festival returned for a second edition at HortPark, and in perhaps the most “aww”-worthy moment of the year, East Coast Park welcomed a mother Hawksbill Turtle that came ashore to lay her eggs.

Let’s also celebrate the inspiring people who have contributed to making our city a home to nature. In this issue, you will hear from a family who volunteers together to conserve our marine biodiversity, as well as a Community in Bloom (CIB) Ambassador who is giving back to society.

And in our own little ways, we can get involved too! Learn three animal photography tips so you can capture your favourite wildlife perfectly with your camera. Also, before we round up this year, get in touch with nature at upcoming Parks Festival from 28 - 29 October and the inaugural Singapore Botanic Gardens Children's Festival from 11 - 26 November 2017.

As we plan for the year ahead, let’s continue to work together towards creating a more biophilic city. An early Seasons’ Greetings, everybody!
