Preparing for the Biodiversity Challenge 2020!

The Biodiversity Challenge is an annual orientation open to anyone with relatively little exposure to biodiversity in Singapore, but are keen to learn more and contribute. It is organised around three elements, and involves spending some 20 hours over 5 months on the following:

  1. Empower yourselves by attending the BFF Seminar & Workshop [4 hours]
  2. Equip – Attend three curated field trips offered by seniors and log your experience in a shared field journal on wordpress. [3 field trips, 10 hours]
  3. Engage & enable – by sharing about nature first with friends and family, and then with the public at a booth during the Festival of Biodiversity [6 hours]

Graduates of the last challenge said this is what they liked of the programme – everyone was welcoming, anyone could join, they made friends and met people in the nature community, their eyes were opened to new places, and they made aware of many things which were hapening in the local scene and got to share existing information about wildlife in Singapore with friends, family and the public.
