One of the world's rarest mangrove trees grows at Pasir Ris! The beautiful Bakau mata buaya which is listed as 'Critically Endangered' not just in Singapore but globally too!
The Bakau Mata Buaya tree is straight and tall!
trashy Pasir Ris Park and fish farms.
300-tonne oil spill in the East Johor Strait a year ago. When I checked up on it a week after the spill, the seagrasses were bleaching. But today, the seagrasses are lush and green.
Spoon seagrass grows here, with big leaves. Quite lush. But I didn't see any dugong feeding trails.
Let's hope this shore and the precious Bakau Mata Buaya continues to survive the threats they face every day.
Before the trip, I had a quick look at Sungei Tampines where dead fishes were reported on 31 Dec 17.
