The generous pre-orders not only allowed us to reach a large bulk order thus reducing the per copy cost. More importantly to me, by taking these copies and giving them out to their own circle of influence, the guidesheet will reach many MANY more people than I could possibly have done on my own. Wonderful! Thank you!
My deep appreciation to the following people!
Jeffrey Low will be sharing a whopping 1,000 copies. Jeff is the scientific lead of ReefFriends with the Blue Water Volunteers who have been doing underwater surveys of Singapore's reefs for more than a decade. He does lots of marine scientific and outreach work and I'm sure he will be able to pass on the guidesheet to many people who can make a difference for our shores. Thanks Jeff!
Raffles Institution. Abby also will share 200 copies via the Blue Water Volunteers. I had a chance during the delivery of the guidesheets to get a glimpse of some of the amazing work they are doing for science and marine studies at the Institution. Bravo!
Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore will be sharing 600 copies with all staff at MPA! Joanne and her colleagues have been to Cyrene Reef with me and shown great interest in our marine life. Bravo!
Zhnagde Primary School will share 500 copies with her students. Catherine also took me on a lovely tour of the awesome gardens at the school which has deservedly won many awards. What a great way introduce kids to nature! Catherine's passion is inspiring!
Hantu Bloggers will be able to give out the guidesheets during their monthly dives at our very own reefs at Pulau Hantu. I failed to take a photo of Russel as he recently got injured and is unable to join us for field trips. Get well soon Russel!
Katong Convent, coincidentally my old secondary school! Pei Yan is also a passionate nature guide and great nature photographer. Check out her blog for more of her inspiring adventures.
Haw Par including foreign visitors to the company as well as friends. Tang Ling has been a keen supporter of our work and I'm thankful for her constant encouragement.
Naked Hermit Crabs and volunteers at various other nature activities. I failed to take a photo of her with the guidesheet, but here is Mama Crab (left in grey) getting the families together before one of the monthly free guided walks provided by the Naked Hermit Crabs.
Bailer volute. Thank you Ley Kun!Chong Jun Hien will share 100 copies with his students at St. Joseph's Institution. He does great work taking the boys outdoors and getting them to make a difference for our shores, especially those at Pulau Ubin.
Green Prints who did a great job using paper from sustainable sources and using green technology low energy consumption printing machines. At a very competitive price too. Thank you Jun Hong and all at Green Prints!
The guidesheet was first born a long long time ago in 2004, put together with Loh Tse-Lynn and with the support of many volunteers from the Blue Water Volunteers.
guide training sessions. I also give them out as a useful aid for safety briefings before TeamSeagrass and other field trips to our reefs.
Sadly, the guidesheets are not for sale at shops as they don't sell well, so the shops don't want to carry them.
I do still have a few hundred unallocated copies available. If you would like to buy bulk purchases of them at 64cents per copy, do email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
