On the 7th March 2009, the RMBR had the honour of hosting Mr. Mah Bow Tan (In red), Minister for National Development, and his family.
Hosted by Prof. Peter Ng (Front) , Prof. Leo Tan and Assoc. Prof. Hugh Tan, Mr. Mah and his family was first shown around the Public Gallery, which often brought back memories from the old days. They were then brought behind the scene to both the dry and wet collection of the Zoological Reference Collection, whereby some of the specimens date back to the 19th century.
Intrigued and amazed by the collection, much experiences were shared and stories were told. It was in all an eventful Saturday morning for the RMBR.
