Letter to the Forum (response to Dino appeal)

Our recent appeal to the public for a $12 million donation to fund the purchase of three dinosaurs have met with much discussion and debate, both for and against our request.

Miss Ong Sor Fern echoed the views of many Singaporeans who were against it when she wrote her column “What have dinosaurs got to do with S’pore?” (ST, 16th July). Other journalists have also put their thoughts on paper and contributed their views (see Mr Ignatious Low’s article Why we need dinosaurs [ST, 17 July] and Miss Grace Chua’s post “A history museum for all ages” [ST, 19 July])

Below is a letter to the Straits Times forum (19th July) by Professor Meier, Professor Peter Ng and  Professor Leo Tan in response to Miss Ong’s column and Mr Low’s commentary.
