Nature conservation efforts in Singapore – a sign of new policymaking or political pressure?

Nature conservation efforts in Singapore - a sign of new policymaking or political pressure?

Just look around the major cities of the world and you will see urban sprawl all around you. For me, as a nature lover, the question isn’t- nature conservation and urban infrastructure: can they live side by side? – but rather, they must live side by side. Nature conservation efforts in Singapore by NBSAP or The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan is working to enhance public awareness and work towards safeguarding the country’s biodiversity and to also introduce species conservation and recovery programmes to bring nature back to the city and beyond. Nature conservation efforts in Singapore are all about seriously conserving Singapore’s habitats and ecosystems. Take away trees, grass, birds and animals, and even those who don’t give nature much thought otherwise will be alarmed. They will be plunged into depression. After a day of concrete walls, concrete paving, noise and pollution, everyone needs to escape into a park, sit on the grass and restore their equilibrium. If you could take a looking glass and see into the future of Singapore, hopefully, you would see the first city in the world that has the right balance of nature and urban infrastructure.
