While Singapore is known as a cosmopolitan, urbanised city, it is also home to an abundance of wildlife. You can easily catch a glimpse of this rich biodiversity: birds and butterflies in the park next to your home; dragonflies and otters playing in the waters flowing through your neighbourhood park; as well as lizards and skinks basking in the sun on a nature trail.
On land, up to 2,000 native vascular plant species, 50 mammal species, 360 bird species, 300 butterfly species, 100 reptile species and 25 amphibian species can be found. In the sea, a mere 1 square kilometres of coral reefs is home to more than 250 species of hard corals, and over 100 species of reef fish.
