Talks at Nature Society (Singapore) this week

Category : talks

Wed 05 Oct 2005: 7.15pm, Merpati Hall, Geylang East Library: FISH FOR ALL OR FISH FOR NONE? By Prof Paul Teng, Head of Natural Sciences and Science Education at NIE.

The World's Fisheries are at a critical state. What can be done to reverse the loss of wild stocks? This seminar is for those concerned about our living aquatic resources, who want to know about fish culture, or anyone who has ever eaten fishballs! Prof Teng, until recently, was the Deputy Director-General at the Worldfish Centre headquartered in Penang.

The Worldfish Centre is an international non-profit organisation which is part of a 15-centre international system of centres supported primarily by the World Bank and the United Nations. Prof Teng has travelled extensively to observe and participate in fish aquaculture and conservation projects throughout the Asia-Pacific. Come join in this discussion on conservation of our aquatic resources.

Fri 07 Oct 2005: 7.30pm, 7.30pm, NSS Office, The Sunflower: WHY DO BIRDS DO WHAT THEY DO? By Wang Luan Keng.

Anyone who takes time watching birds has much to discover and learn. Besides enjoying the beauty of birds, making an effort to interpret what you see in the field can be stimulating and enjoyable.

Ms Wang Luan Keng has been studying birds since 1990. She has co-authored with Dr Chris Hails a paper entitled, "An Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Singapore", that has been accepted for publication by the British Ornithological Union. She is also helping Chris to revise Times Editions' "Birds of Singapore". Come join us at this talk by a field ornithologist and find out more about bird ecology.
