Tape seagrass (Enhalus acoroides), Sickle seagrass (Thalassia hemprichii), Serrated ribbon seagrass (Cymodocea serrulata), Noodle seagrass (Syringodium isoetifolium), Spoon seagrasses (Halophila ovalis) and Needle seagrasses (Halodule sp.).
Cyrene in August, where they were mostly 'chomped' short. As usual, there is a good growth of Codium green seaweed (Codium sp.) among the seagrasses.
Bonduc (Caesalpinia bonduc). The female plant here has produced lots of seed pods!
National Biodiversity Centre and takes a few of the seeds to grow them and hopefully cultivate more of these precious plants.
Api-api jambu (Avicennia marina). The leaves of the small tree seems to be a little yellowish. Oh dear.
Mud crab (Scylla sp.)! It was about 30cm wide! It was still very much alive.
Project Driftnet. But I'm finding it hard to find time to do more systematic checks of our shores for these nets.

TeamSeagrass is a volunteer programme that monitors many of our shores including Pulau Semakau, Chek Jawa and Cyrene Reef. Here's more about how to join TeamSeagrass.
In a few hours, I'll be back on the shore monitoring the seagrasses at Labrador.
