About the exhibition
The Singapore Botanic Gardens is not only the caretaker of the botanical heritage of Singapore, it is also a haven for numerous resident and migrant birds in the island state. To date, 180 bird species, about 44% of the total number of species recorded in Singapore, have been spotted in the Gardens, contributing to its status as a designated Nature Area of Singapore and a favoured spot for birding in Singapore. This exhibition is a curated selection of photographs shared by the community of birding enthusiasts who come to the Gardens to observe, admire, study and research the amazing diversity of birds found in Singapore Botanic Gardens. Through it, we also highlight the role of green spaces like the Gardens to support the biodiversity conservation goals of City in Nature.

That such a diverse cross-section of avian species can be found in the Gardens did not happen by chance. It is a result of the long-term botanical research and horticultural works undertaken by the Gardens in conserving and rehabilitating natural habitats and the flora of Singapore. The birds, in turn, contribute to enriching the habitats by playing their part in the complex food webs that underpin our urban and forest ecosystems.

This exhibition welcomes you to step into A Garden of Birds – Community Photography Exhibition of the Birds of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
