Recalling a wonderful thing which happened last year – students wow the audience at the Evening of Biodiversity II

The mammal seniors of Otterman Holt did well that evening and the crowd amazed us – 400 turned up (we maxed out parking) within a week of the announcement and enjoyed heartening talks of great clarity and pace.

When I ended the Evening of Biodiversity II with a “Aren’t they lovely?”, Prab Nathan positioned behind the table, caught the audience applauding, nice work!

While searching for photos of teaching, I finally really examined this photo. Wow, we did this last April?

Adrian Loo aka Lekowala was front and centre, of course, just in front of the projector. He gave each one of them his palm guidebook, a lovely gesture and a hat tip to a 14-year old idea of the Toddycat and the Palm Leaf.

That logo was prepared for when we launched the Public Gallery of the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research on 15th June 2001. Fourteen years later and its soon time to launch the new building of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum!

I guess we’ll do this once in four years? 2018 then!
