“Green, Mean, Photosynthesizing machines”

A special talk to be held at the Reef Celebrations!

by Yang Shufen of
and NParks National Biodiversity Centre

Seagrasses are marine flowering plants that are the much forgotten cousins of the marine world. Find out more about Singapore's rich seagrass flora and the fauna that depend on these marine plants. Get to know the fun and wacky team that's looking after the health of our seagrasses and the adventures and scrapes they get themselves into!

About the speaker: Shufen is a Biology graduate from NUS. She's spent the last two and a half years working with the National Biodiversity Centre of NParks, the bulk of which was spent doing field surveys in both land and intertidal areas of Singapore. Although Shufen is a mangrove girl at heart, she also has a soft spot for seagrasses, which led her to agree to speak on behalf of Siti for the seagrasses of Singapore.

Date: 9 Aug (Sat)
Time: 4pm
Venue: Function Hall, Botany Centre, Singapore Botanic Gardens (above Taman Serasi foodcourt), more about getting there.
