Prepping at the Sisters' Island Marine Park

Well before dawn, a small team of volunteer guides and NParks officers are on the shore to familiarise ourselves in preparation for public walks on the Sisters' Island Marine Park.
Other volunteers are also on the trip to check for coral bleaching on this shore.

Rambutans at Chek Jawa with the Naked Hermit Crabs

Another lovely day at the Chek Jawa boardwalk with families for the month free guided walks with the Naked Hermit Crabs.
It's always a joy to share my favourite shore with such enthusiastic kids and families.

Checking up on dead fishes at Sungei Buloh

On 24 Jul I saw 40 dead fishes at Sungei Buloh in the morning. That same afternoon, I heard the Sungei Buloh Besar river turned black again. The river had turned black the day before, and a lot more dead fishes were seen two days before that.
On 25 Jul, I returned to Sungei Buloh to check on the dead fish situation. I also attended the opening of the Lorong Halus Jetty where for the first time in decades, fish farmers in the East are provided with industrial-sized trash disposal containers dedicated to fish farm trash on the mainland.

29 Jul (Tue): Talk on "Singapore’s Overlooked Marine Biodiversity"

Nothing was known about the Singaporean bryozoan diversity until two years ago.
Now it is known that over one hundred species occur here (but the fauna is probably in excess of 200 species) and several new endemic bryozoan species are being described. Come learn about these fascinating creatures from Dr Kevin Tilbrook!
