Dr. Jane’s visit to Singapore 2017 was kicked off with a public talk on August 6th for which Dr. Jane shared her stories and thoughts on conservation at the MES Theatre, Mediacorp.

The theme of the event  ‘One Nature, Together’, based on Singapore’s National Day theme of ‘One Nation Together’, emphasised the need for different stakeholders, including members of the public, governmental institutions and non-profit organisations, to come together to push for an increase in environmental awareness and action in Singapore. Indeed, people did come together for the day’s event and the auditorium was packed, with approximately 1,500 people present.

The day’s events were kick started with an address by Kae Fong Tay, President of JGIS, who emphasised the growth JGIS has seen over the past ten years, since its founding in 2007.
