Envirofest'08 - fascination with the baby Dugong

Category : events

The Raffles Museum Toddycats' Public Exhibition team at Envirofest find themselves talking until they are blue in the face and dehydrated because of a fascinated public. The draw? The baby dugong exhibit that is a feature of all their exhibits. Even as they are setting up the questions stream in. The conversation goes from the tragic specimen to other dugong sightings and bodies that have been spotted around north-eastern Singapore waters. Then the guiding conversation goes on to seagrass, and where this ecosystem can be found in our shores and issues about marine impact.

That's why we call the exhibition team "See Dugongs" as they invariably invite some gawking kid to "come see the dugong?"
