The Festival of Biodiversity 2013!

The Festival of Biodiversity (FOB) is an annual event organized by the National Parks Board in collaboration with the Biodiversity Roundtable. It first started in 2012 and was held at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The FOB an event to celebrate Singapore’s natural heritage to bring about greater awareness of the rich biodiversity in Singapore.

ButterflyCircle is a partner and a member of the Biodiversity Roundtable. Last year, ButterflyCircle featured a collage of our members' work at our booth. We also launched our book, "Caterpillars of Singapore's Butterflies". See the blog article here.

This year, ButterflyCircle will be doing a video clip showcasing our members' work and ButterflyCircle's objectives, activities and contributions to promoting butterfly conservation and education in Singapore. The video clip will be played on a 40" LCD screen at the exhibition area of the FOB.

There will be activities for the family! Nature workshops are free on a first-come-first-served basis. There will also be several exhibitions (i.e. 'Our Natural Heritage', 'Animals Specimens Showcase', 'Year of the Snakes in Singapore 2013').

The FOB will be held at Vivo City (Level 1 Central court B & West Boulevard) on the 13th & 14th of July (Sat & Sun) from 10am to 10pm. The launch will be at 11:30am on Saturday and President Tony Tan will be the Guest of Honour!

All ButterflyCircle members are welcomed to join in for the Launch/Opening Ceremony at 11:30am at Vivocity. See you there on Saturday!
