Chek Jawa Mangrove Boardwalk closed 29 Sep 2014 to 31 Jan 2015

The Chek Jawa Mangrove Boardwalk and Jejawi Tower will be closed from 29 Sep 2014 to 31 Jan 2015 for "upgrading works". Other facilities such as the Coastal Boardwalk, Visitor Centre and Viewing Jetty will remain open.
The Naked Hermit Crabs were so lucky to bring families to see the Mangrove Boardwalk before it was closed!

Draft Campaign Strategy on Marine Trash in Singapore by Green Future Solutions

Today, during the Naked Hermit Crab walk for families on the Chek Jawa boardwalk, I saw large trash on the high shore at Chek Jawa.
I am so glad Eugene Tay of Green Future Solutions has drawn up a Draft Campaign Strategy on Marine Trash in Singapore.
The Campaign Goal is to "Convince the government to appoint a lead agency (NEA or the new Municipal Services Office) to study the problem of marine trash and work with the relevant agencies to implement effective policies, programmes and infrastructure to reduce marine trash".

Two sofas were dumped on Pulau Ubin just opposite nearby fish farms.
As well as lots of other trash that probably came from nearby fish farms.
