Oil spill at East Johor Strait: YOUR sightings part 2

This weekend, lots of volunteers checked up on our northern shores to see how the oil spill impacted them. Among the most important, volunteers gently kayaked into the heart of Ubin mangroves to check up on the impact there.
Thanks to Ng Siak Juay, Victor Toh and Chan May Yen
with Phillip Lim's support for doing this kayak survey.
Minister Desmond Lee also shared some of what happened during the oil spill.

On 14 Jan (Sat), an exhaustive survey of oil spill impact in the heart of Ubin's mangroves was done, gently by kayak. Thanks to NG Siak Juay, Victor Toh and Chan May Yen with Phillip Lim's support.

The blue line is their survey route, with their comments.
A) Noordin Beach / Puaka entrances. Slick most noticeable.
B) First curve. Less noticeable.
C) Second curve towards Noordin Bridge. Fewer slick observed.
Among the sad sights seen were 'oiled' snails on a mangrove root.
