Mandai mangrove and mudflat workshop on 31 Aug (Sat), which will bring together lots of people who care about Mandai mangroves.
I was quite perplexed when I didn't see this seagrass in the usual places at Mandai during my trip earlier in Jul 2013. This is what I saw in Mar 2011 when I first visited Mandai.
Beccari's seagrass (Halophila beccarii) is listed as Critically Endangered in Singapore. Globally, it is considered a rare and uncommon seagrass with a distribution restricted to the Bay of Bengal and South China Sea
Perepat (Sonneratia alba) seedlings and trees.
awesome photos of spiders and other sightings during our trip. Thanks Jason!
Here's the kml file from my Google Drive.
Limau lelang (Merope angulata) shrub. It was blooming and Jason spotted the fruits.
Hoya climbers were blooming! From the pretty flowers, it is obvious how they got the common name of Wax flowers.
Lokan (Geloina sp. aka Polymesoda sp.)? The clam that Dr Tan Koh Siang says is so well adapted to being out of water that you can keep one in your drawer for a month (see the video clip of Dr Tan sharing about this clam during the Mega Marine Survey at Admiralty Park).
Project Driftnet for this.
