I was quite nervous to be in such illustrious company!
Nature Society (Singapore) gave a great talk about the celebrated history of the Society and some of its recent efforts. Among them, the Cross Island Line. See also the NSS Discussion and Position Paper on the Cross Island Line (pdf).
Waterways Watch Society, as usual gave a great introduction about the importance of water and how we need to look after it. His points about how Singapore is a cleaned city and not a clean city is sobering.
mass fish deaths to general surveys and sightings.
Ubin Day! Other issues I covered included the effort for Chek Jawa, how the Sisters Islands Marine Park came about, of course my favourite idea for a Singapore Great Barrier Reef and more. After the talks, we had lots of interesting questions from the participants.
Wild Singapore coffee table book was among the broad spectrum of reading materials provided for the participants to browse through!
