Crabs at the Festival of Biodiversity!

President Tony Tan visited the Festival and the Crabs take the opportunity to share about the important aspects of our biodiversity. Heng Pei Yan managed to get a smile out of him by showing him how the dugong leaves a feeding trail in our seagrass meadows.
Mama Crab Wong Ley Kun together with Ivan Kwan also met with the President for a short while. They took the opportunity also to share about the work done by the Naked Hermit Crabs.
The Crabs worked very hard during the Festival to reach out to families, kids and others at VivoCity.

This child made his father drive him down all the way from Pasir Ris for the Festival. His mother learnt about the Festival from the internet, he said. The child played all the sets in the game with Ley Kun.
Kids take seriously the game made by Liana Tang of the Naked Hermit Crabs and conducted here by November Tan.
Our Seashore CSI is always a big hit. Here's Yin Xin  having fun trying to figure out what happened from the gruesome remains of sea creatures that we commonly find on the beach in Singapore.
Kok Sheng also has fun with the kids at this game.
Here's Pei Yan showing kids how the dugong feeds as part of the "Where do I live?" sea shore game which helps highlight that the seashore is not uniform and that different kinds of animals need different kinds of seashores to live in, often at different parts of their life cycle.
Ivan is also a Toddycat so he was hard at work sharing about specimens from the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research.
While Chay Hoon wowed the kids at her very popular clay making sessions.
We had a great time with the others in the marine and nature community that came together for the Festival.
