After attending National Geographic’s Introduction to Conservation course, I realised that conservation is everybody’s business. I wanted to do something to help, so I put together this experience because I like holding dinner parties and I’m an educator. Voila, The Pangolin Conservation Dinner was born! It’s a cross between private dining and a conservation education session with less of the sad stuff that makes you cry and hate humanity.
I chose to focus on Pangolins for my first project because all 8 species of Pangolin are either critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable (that is, they’re all at risk of extinction). They’re also the most trafficked animal on earth and Sunda Pangolins are native to Singapore!
Here are some things about the Pangolin Conservation Dinner
- Guests learn about Pangolins
- The food is inspired by Pangolins and vegetarian
- I’ve made an effort to minimise waste from the dinner as much as possible. For example, I shop for the veg at the wet market to minimise packaging waste and I vermi-post the scraps
- During dinner, guests are invited to consider aspects of the Pangolin which are similar or dissimilar to themselves and to have a conversation about it
- The dinner supports Singapore conservation organisations
- Guests get to meet a couple of live “pangolins”
The Pangolin Conservation Dinner is $70/person with 50% of the that ticket price going to conservation organisations. At the moment, I can take 2 fully vaccinated guests. If think you’d like to attend one, let me know using the form below!
