The Festival of Biodiversity is an annual event held by NParks celebrating Singapore’s native biodiversity and wildlife. This year, JGIS set up a booth to spread awareness about the four species of primates in Singapore – the Long-tailed Macaque, the Slow Loris, the Raffles’ Banded Langur, and finally, us humans! Through activities such as interactive quizzes and a lucky draw at our photo booth, we engaged the audience and promoted the vision and work of Dr. Jane Goodall. The photo booth was particularly well-received – participants wrote messages to Dr. Jane and their wishes for the environment on the photo frame before our volunteers took photos and shared them on Facebook and Instagram.
Through the booth activities, live streams, and sharing from our energetic volunteers, visitors learnt more about the characteristics and behaviour of Singapore’s native primate species as well as Dr Jane’s life and legacy. We would like to thank everyone who came to our booth to support us and hope that everyone had an enjoyable time, just like we did!
