ABOUT THE DIGITAL NATURE ARCHIVE OF SINGAPORE

This website is created by the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR) at the National University of Singapore, to provide a searchable digital database of Singapore’s natural heritage, i.e., its flora, fauna and natural habitats. The initial funding for creating the digital nature archive (DNA) is sponsored by the Care-For-Nature Trust Fund of Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. RMBR maintains and update the database, with supports from the National Parks Board.

Our objectives:

  • To provide a free online searchable digital database on natural history, for use by students, educators, general public, conservationists and scientists
  • To sort, catalogue and systematically archive the vast treasury of wildlife images, nature places and people from Singapore through
    • slides and print images
    • digital images
    • historical photographs (e.g. from retired university professors, natural historians, experienced photographers, old local books, etc.)
    • video clips and sound clips
  • Provide information on species status, habitats and general biology
  • Permit student to student transfer of knowledge and information through their involvement in collecting more digital images, thereby ensuring the continued building of the database resource.
  • Make Singapore a centre for nature education using IT.
