I had a great evening sharing about our shores with these high-energy student councillors at Dunman High School!
Before the talk, the students enthusiastically examined the Southern Shores guidesheet for the stonefish. It appears they had recently visited Sentosa and were curious about the stonefish and other marine life that can be found on our shores.
This is part of Mr Loh Kok Sheng's effort to introduce his students to nature and nature guiding under a very apt name of EXCEL. This programme hopes to expose students to real issues, and real efforts to address them by real people. The plan is for them to join in the Naked Hermit Crabs' regular free guided walks on the Chek Jawa boardwalk. I'm delighted to be a part of this, and look forward to meeting these joyful students outdoors!
This is the second run of the programme. We had a great time when the Dunman High students first joined the Crabs' walks at Chek Jawa last year. Here's some of the students on the bumboat to Pulau Ubin for the walk.

It's great to know there are many joyful youths ready to share about Chek Jawa! Look out for them at the Naked Hermit Crabs' upcoming walks at Chek Jawa.
