Clams still dominate this Changi shore

This Changi shore is one of the nicest, with seagrass meadows and amazing marine life.
Living shores of Changi, Aug 2020
Large beds of mussels, which we first noticed in Feb 2019, still dominate this shore. I notice less seagrass in many parts of the shore. But seagrasses are still lush in other parts, and we still encounter our favourite anemones and sea stars.

Special Changi shore still alive!

There is a stretch of Changi which has lush seagrasses as well as colourful rich marine life growing on hard surfaces.

This shore was hit by the Jan 2017 oil spill and scoured by loose stakes rolling on the shore. It's good to see that the situation continues to improve here.

Rushan has worked several exciting sea turtle projects from around the world. Join him as he tells a tale of three such sea turtles from across the seven seas. While some of these stories have a happy ending, it is not so for all sea turtles, here or abroad.
But all is not lost, as you will find that YOU have the power to be the change sea turtles need.

Time: 3-4pm Singapore time (GMT +8)

Mega fauna sightings (May-Jul 2020)

Sea turtles and signs of dugongs were seen on our shores as surveys and dives restarted in Phase 2.
Jimmy Choo encountered this beautiful Hawksbill sea turtle while diving Pulau Hantu on 12 Jul 2020.

Have you seen sea turtles in and around Singapore? Perhaps while on a stroll by the sea, or while boating, kayaking, fishing or diving? Share your sightings in this survey to help Dr Zeehan Jaafar and her team identify areas where sea turtles (alive, injured, or dead) are encountered. So that we can all better understand these magnificent creatures!
