Launch of Underwater World Singapore Tigerfish exhibit (9 February 2010)

Prof Peter Ng was the Guest-of-Honour at the launch of the Underwater World Singapore (UWS) Tigerfish exhibit on 9 Feb 2010.

The exhibit is to celebrate the Chinese Lunar Year of the Tiger and the International Year of Biodiversity 2010.

In support of RMBR’s fundraising to build a new natural history museum, an interactive Fortune Wheel with Chinese zodiac signs has been set up for visitors to make a donation by inserting a $1 coin to activate the Fortune Wheel. All monies collected will be donated to the RMBR.

The Fortune Wheel will be up during the first month of the lunar calendar.
