SINGAPORE: The National Parks Board’s Garden City Fund (GCF) will get a boost from a corporate donation for an upcoming survey of coral reefs.
The Air Liquide Group will donate more than S$50,000 to the fund.
Chairman of GCF, Professor Leo Tan, said: "It is with such partnerships that we can continue our efforts to conserve and sustain our biodiversity for present and future generations to enjoy."
Professor Tan added that Air Liquide is supporting an important national project that will contribute towards the management of Singapore’s coastal and marine environment.
For the coral reef survey to be carried out, the GCF is seeking additional funds of S$220,000.
The coral reef survey, scheduled to start next year, is part of the Comprehensive Marine Biodiversity Survey, a national initiative to take stock of Singapore’s marine ecosystem, species diversity and distribution.
