NParks and Mr Sivasothi (@sivasothi) organised a 'Careers in Conservation' workshop which was held at the Singapore Botanical Gardens targeting youth with zero background but had interests in pursuing jobs in conservation. It was a fun experiences and participants got to meet and interact with industrial mentors from various fields, ranging from statutory boards to private companies. Dr P. was invited to participate as a mentor to highlight the opportunities that were available in academia and research industries. She even received followup emails from participants that had more specific questions.
