S'pore shows how nature, urbanisation can thrive side-by-side

What a feat to have discovered so many new species here (480 new species discovered in Singapore; May 28).

The way we seamlessly blend urbanisation with nature could become an example for the rest of the world to follow.

Singapore could become a leading centre for research on how nature can be sustained despite rapid development.

Especially heartening is the fact that the young are leading the charge as volunteers, promoting the importance of appreciating and preserving our green spots.

It appears there is much more in the way of biodiversity to be found here than anywhere else on this planet.
