Dr. Chan Kin Onn - Taking citizen science to the next level: Now everyone can be a herpetologist

23rd August 2020 (Sun), 3-4PM

Dr. Chan Kin Onn is the resident herpetologist at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. He has more than 15 years of experience conducting field-based research throughout Southeast Asia. His research integrates a broad array of tools to understand how biodiversity is generated and distributed across time and space.

Using non-invasive data collection methods and modern tools that are freely available, everyone can be a herpetologist!

Rushan has worked several exciting sea turtle projects from around the world. Join him as he tells a tale of three such sea turtles from across the seven seas.
