Get out of the closet

Are you a Closet Greenie? This term mentioned by N. Sivasothi, Researcher at NUS' Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, at the first Seminar at ADEX 2004, refers to people who have an interest, concern and want to learn more about the environment. These are the people, usually without a formal background in conservation or scientific work or studies, or lack the resources and know-how to learn more. They have however, one very powerful asset - an interest. And with this interest they are constantly motivated to learn more, continuously nurturing their interest. These are the people who garner support and the unsuppressing pressure from the ground. These are the people who gave Chek Jawa its reprieve.
