About the Presenters/Speakers

Mr. Chua Sek Chuan, Marine Biologist/ Nature Guide

Sek Chuan found his passion in coral reef conservation and began exploring the intertidal and underwater world. Holding a Master's degree in Marine Affairs and Ecology, he added mangroves, seagrasses and even tropical rainforests to his interest and has been playing a “behind-the-scenes” role in education, awareness and conservation of nature, especially marine nature. He has been working in nature education for close to 30 years in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia and is particularly familiar with underwater Singapore and Malaysia. Sek Chuan also guides at the Sisters’ Islands Marine Park, amongst many other nature reserves, sharing what he loves and knows best.

Ms. Lisa Lim, Educator/Nature Guide

Lisa has been an active advocate for outdoor and nature learning who loves her mega-outdoor classrooms. Armed with degrees in Education and Environmental Studies, she has been in the education sector for 2 decades. She is equally comfortable treading the forested trails in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve talking about tropical rainforest or exploring the mangroves at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Pasir Ris, sharing about coastal wetlands and intertidal shores and exciting her young students and participants about the flora and fauna found in these habitats. Lisa, a member of NSS, is an active NSS volunteer and also volunteers with Nparks, helping and being involved in education outreach. She loves the sea, and always delights in guiding, passionately sharing her knowledge and experience about the rich biodiversity of our first gazetted marine park at Sisters’ Islands.
