Restore Ubin Mangrove (R.U.M.) Initiative
Meanwhile, researchers and volunteers of the Restore Ubin Mangrove (R.U.M.) Initiative volunteers have been hard at work on Pulau Ubin. R.U.M. Researchers Zheng Zhangxin and Ong Wei Bin have been mapping the restoration sites almost daily! They also map natural mangroves to find out what kind of conditions mangroves like. In this way, we hope to create these conditions so that Mother Nature can replant the bare ponds.
More photos of the mangrove mapping.
Together with R.U.M. volunteer Mohammad Juhari, we held another FREE mangrove walk at Pulau Ubin. Had a great time sharing with the small but enthusiastic group of participants, exploring Ubin and the beautiful mangroves.
