The Hard Cnidarians Workshop
by the Leafmonkey Workshop

What are "hard cnidarians"? These aren't difficult cnidarians, but corals with hard skeletons!Living reefs of Raffles Lighthouse, SingaporeThe focus of this workshop is on connecting ordinary people with nature. If you are a nature guide and have been struggling, trying to digest and convert biological facts to fun stories for your visitors, this workshop is for you!

This workshop aims to bring experienced and new nature guides together to brainstorm ideas. Let's learn from one another, and come up with new ways to share our passion.

Be prepared to work hard, have fun, make new friends and definitely learn new ways of looking at guiding and our wild places.
