A bizarre sea anemone is found during today's Mega Marine Survey at Lim Chu Kang! It's large and full of bumps on the body column.
Plain anemone that we sometimes see on our other shores. This sea anemone has yet to be identified!
Later on, I found another of these strange anemones. Here's what it looks like while it's still in the mud.
Stargazer waspfish or Mangrove waspfish? We also found a little mudskipper and other small fishes.
Synaptid sea cucumber? Ken Jin also found some brittlestars under a piece of wood. The first time we have found echinoderms on a mangrove mudflat during the Survey. So exciting!
Onch slugs on the shores. Here's a closer look at one busy slurping up stuff from the mud, leaving a trail of poop behind it. Mud creatures are gross but fascinating!

There is a huge pile of trash on the high water mark. Lim Chu Kang is one of the worst affected shores for trash. International Coastal Cleanup Singapore (ICCS) looks after this and many of our other 'trashed' shores. You can make a difference by joining ICCS.
Project Driftnet. Sigh.
Too much to clean up! Tomorrow, we are Project Driftnet at Mandai mangroves.
