I had a great time sharing about our shores at the National University of Singapore.
Chek Jawa and the people who worked on this shore influenced me deeply, so I shared a little about this. I had earlier shared more about my memories of Chek Jawa on the Singapore Celebrates our Reefs blog. Including what happened after deferment of reclamation, the construction of the boardwalk and the future of Chek Jawa.
the Hantu Bloggers conducted guided dives every month just to prove that this is so.

explore, express and act for our shores!
some of the approaches I've taken that seems to deal with some of the issues. There was also a discussion about Resorts World Sentosa bringing in dolphins: lots more about this on the Save the World's Saddest Dolphins facebook page. And many other questions too. Some even offered to help me work out talks for schools. This is great!
Thanks to Dr Peter A Todd of the Marine Bio Lab at NUS for inviting me to share at this seminar! Thanks also to the wonderful audience who put up with my rather rambling talk and laughed at my lame jokes. These young marine biologists and scientists are the hope for our shores! Bravo!
Giant Clam Girl to drop by and pass me a copy of the "Reef Rehabilitation Manual"! Wow. And also to bump into Siti who is working on our seagrasses. And thanks to Rick and friends for sharing a slice of cake with me.
