Marine litter featured in a magazine for Singapore school children

Thanks to Jason of Nurture Craft, thousands of school children read my little blog post about marine litter on Singapore shores and how one person can make a difference.
He had included it in Think Earth, a magazine targetted at children 12 and above and sold to schools in Singapore.

The article features the good work of the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore (ICCS) which has been collecting data on marine litter in Singapore for 20 years! ICCS is now Singapore's largest volunteer effort. This year (2013) more than 3,000 people volunteered, collecting nearly 2,000 bags of marine trash weighing 14 tonnes from 19km of shoreline. Full data details here.
The article explains why marine debris is a key issue and how data collection can help work towards a solution.
As usual, Jason includes lots of links for the kids to find out more!
Think Earth which has a circulation of about 1,000, uses articles produced by the the US National Wildlife Federation .

The Nurture Craft folks also want to feature articles on Singapore nature and wildlife and would be glad to consider such articles.

So if you have any suitable stories to share, perhaps a blog post that you had already written, please contact Jason Ong TEeditor@nurturecraft.com. What a great way to reach out to Singapore kids about our very own wildlife and wild places!
