|The amazing seagrass meadows and reefs of Cyrene|
in the world's busiest port: YES! Singapore got marine life!
No need to swim, no need to dive! Ordinary people can experience much of Singapore's amazing marine life on the intertidal shore. Wild dolphins, sea turtles, Nemos, sea snakes and more. With stunning views of coral reefs, soaring coastal cliffs, lush seagrass meadows. From accessible shores like Sentosa, Changi and East Coast Park, to our many huge submerged reefs. I will share stories of adventures on our living shores. And how you too can make a difference for them with your photos.
Nature Photographic Society of Singapore (NPSS) would invite me to speak about our shores even though I'm a terrible photographer. I'm also quite nervous and awed to share the afternoon with William Tan (clearly a Real Photographer).
The talk is on 25 Mar (Sat), 2-5pm, Canon Office, 1 Fusionopolis Place, Galaxis, Level 14 Singapore 138522. The talk is free but registration is required. More details on the NPSS website.
Coincidentally, thanks to Antoine, I received 5 copies of this wonderful waterproof guide of typical tropical marine life. Packed in this booklet is everything you need to know about the animal and plant, from its habitat, size to its symbionts and associates and whether it is dangerous.
Estuarine seahorse (Hippocampus kuda) which is described from Singapore, so it's appropriate to have our very own seahorse represented.
Sea Apple sea cucumber (Pseudocolochirus violaceus), which is amazingly sometimes abundant on Changi shores.
Clear sundial snail (Architectonica perspectiva) which is sometimes seen on our Southern shores.
Chocolate sponge (Spheciospongia cf. vagabunda) which dots many of our Southern reef flats near seagrass meadows.

Come for the talk this Saturday so we can share more ideas about how our photos can help marine conservation!
Here's more about what I shared the last time I spoke at NPSS four years ago.
