Our friends at Nature Society (Singapore) have released this report on conserving Bukit Brown Cemetery for its environmental, heritage and educational value. Do have a look and lend your support for this worthy cause.
Green Drinks’ stance on this issue is that we are supportive of redevelopment – but for the benefit of biodiversity of all species. We’d like to see a space that Singapore residents and visitors can use to learn about the existing environment and of Singapore’s past. A living museum of our past, and a place where old memories can make new memories.
A petition site will soon be up, but to find out more about Bukit Brown and be informed of the ongoing developments, do join the following groups on Facebook:
- Heritage Singapore – Bukit Brown Cemetery
- Save Bukit Brown Cemetery
- Save Bukit Brown Cemetery – the roots of our nation
We hope to have your support :)
