The nets are very extensive! Draping and choking a variety of big old mangrove trees here.
After carefully removing the nets, we stuff them into garbage bags then into 'China bags' for easy carrying out of the mangroves.
Rene explored Kranji Nature Trail before we started on the net removal, and she saw a pair of otters! These mangroves are homes to trees and wildlife that could get hurt by abandoned nets. Sigh.

A few of us are focusing on collecting data on abandoned nets and traps as part of Project Driftnet.
Thanks to the intrepid team of volunteers for removing this net: Andy, Brandon, Bee Yan, Rene, Sean and Able!
