Kusu Island with sea snake!

Just minutes from the Central Business District is a lovely shore at Kusu Island. A small team explore it at a not-so-low tide.

Changi is teeming with sea stars! A small team surveys this shore for the first time in a year.

Raining snakes at Pasir Ris

It was wet and rainy, and there were only four visitors who joined our walk. But the Naked Hermit Crabs (who outnumbered the visitors) still had a great time at Pasir Ris yesterday evening.
Here is Keane, the only young visitor at the walk, spotting the second snake of the day!

This talk is for anyone, teachers, students, or public, who are interested to know what kind of wildlife and flora Singapore has and about their conservation value. It is also for anyone who are curious about being a part of the conservation industry as they have the opportunity to ask the conservationists themselves their questions.
