New Mega Marine Lab Session dates for sign up: Jan-Jul 2012

Your help is needed in the laboratory to sort out what has been found in the Mega Marine Surveys! You do not need to have any training to join these sessions, there will be staff to guide you in the labs.
As Dr Tan Koh Siang showed during a Dialogue Session, we often have to take a much closer look to identify what have been found. So far, only 10% of our finds have been sorted out! Volunteers are needed to sort out invertebrates, fishes and tiny creatures.

Here's more about the lab sessions from an extract of Jonathan's email. His full email is on the Mega Marine Survey yahoo groups (accessible to registered volunteers).

The following lab sessions are available for sign ups. In the lab sessions, we will be working in the comfort of air conditioned labs either at Tropical Marine Science Institute's facilities at St John's Island or National University of Singapore's Kent Ridge Campus. You do not need to have any training to join us in these sessions, there will be staff to guide you in the labs. If you would like to take a close up look at the animals collected in our surveys, or if you wish to have a feel of what it feels like to be working in a lab environment, do join us for these sessions.

If you are interested in taking part in any of the sessions, please email jonathan_ngiam@nparks.gov.sg, with the session you would like to attend, as well as your full name and mobile number.
