Secret Lives of Singapore's Otters
Sivasothi is an educator who loves animals, nature and the environment. A.k.a Otterman, Sivasothi gave himself the moniker to excite kids at talks when he started research about otters in the early 90’s, when the animals were still unfamiliar to Singaporeans.

Death by Man
From a critically endangered Sunda pangolin roadkill to a paradise tree snake trapped in a plastic bag and left for dead, countless wild animals have lost their lives to our urban environment and human activities. Join lens-based artist, Jasvic Lye, as she takes you through her journey of documenting the plight of Singapore's wildlife through photography and evocative stories in her yearslong project entitled 'Death by Man', and learn what we can do to prevent more animals from suffering the same unfortunate fate.

Coexisting with Our Wild Neighbours
A 5am uwu-uwu call or a sight of a slithering python by the bin centre at night - have you always wondered what can YOU as an individual do, to learn and practice coexistence? From expanding nature networks to enhancing our urban spaces to create a liveable environment for both people and wildlife, Singapore is transitioning into a City in Nature. Due to the unique landscape of our nation, human-wildlife interactions are becoming more frequent than ever and we must learn to coexist with our wild neighbours. Gain a better understanding of our urban species and discover simple ways to make coexistence possible.
