A little while ago the Straits Times reported how Singapore was growing more wild during the circuit breaker (due to less maintenance) and the benefits of that to biodiversity. Now the BBC has picked up the story of the garden city turing more natural with grassy areas growing wild and flowering, and they quote ASE's Dr Kang Min Ngo (speaking on behalf of Nature Society): "Because of these grasses, we are seeing more butterflies and other insects. The birds that eat these insects also grow in abundance,". Well said, Dr. Ngo!
