It’s a question that anyone involved in nature outreach in Singapore is bound to encounter someday. Yes, despite this country being a small island that has undergone lots of development, lots of wildlife still survives or even thrives in Singapore! If you’ve ever pondered this question yourself, here’s a video that was first screened at last year’s Festival of Biodiversity.

Drawing on footage recorded by more than 30 people, this compilation by David Tan, Eunice Soh, and Jocelyne Sze presents a tiny slice of Singapore’s native biodiversity.

Ria has a video that serves as a sampler of our marine life, called Singapore Surprise:
