The Hantu Blog want to hear from you!

Making full use of the spring low tide! While half the team headed for Labrador, I checked out Berlayar Creek shores with the rest of the team.

Located near Jurong Island and next to Pulau Bukom and the petrochemical plants there. And yet, this large submerged reef has corals and other reef life!

A glorious sunset at the end of a survey of the southern side of Beting Bemban Besar, a really huge submerged reef off Pulau Semakau.
It was great to see the seagrasses are still doing well, teeming with a variety of marine life. Reminds me of Cyrene! We also saw Giant clam, large Knobbly sea stars, 'Nemos' and Alex our skipper saw sea turtles around the big boat while we were out surveying.

Thanks to NParks sharing background on the issue and the immediate and long-term steps they are taking to stop grasscutters from littering plastic nylon strings. This follows my letter to NParks and MSO on 7 Nov.
NParks has instructed their contractors to stop littering. In the longer term, NParks hopes where possible, to convert grass areas into Nature Ways. NParks appreciates the sightings and mapping and hopes the public can continue to help pick up legacy string and share sightings, in order to keep track of the situation and permanently resolve this issue.

found by the public since Aug 2018.
|Sightings are updates on this public google map.|
