Pulau Tekukor is alive!

This lovely island has natural natural cliffs cloaked with coastal forests, natural rocky shores.

Punggol shore clinging on to life

We return to this rocky shore, directly opposite the source of the 300-tonne oil spill in the East Johor Strait in Jan 2017 at Pasir Gudang Port in Johor.

The shore today seemed a lot less lively than our last survey in May 2017. But there is still some life here.

Special Changi shore finally cleaned of oil, still alive!

We surveyed a stretch of shore that used to be lined with long stakes and large bags that appeared to be some attempt at erosion control. During the Jan 2017 oil spill, the entire set up was badly covered in oil and remained so 12 months after the spill was cleaned up elsewhere.

Today, we found the entire set up had been removed. But the shore seemed rather barren, although the eastern part of it is still lively.
