We survey this Changi shore that was hit by the 300-tonne oil spill in the East Johor Strait in Jan 2017
Today, there are still dense patches of seagrasses. Mostly Spoon seagrasses. The tide didn't go down as low as predicted, so we didn't get to see much of the shore as we did in May 2017.
Ball flowery soft corals. There were also some sea anemones, a some tiny and big Biscuit sea stars. As usual, many sea cucumbers. I only saw one White sea urchin. It did rain before our trip, so perhaps the animals were hiding.
Lenggadai, Tumu berau and Tengar.
Straw tubeworms. I also saw a few Solitary tubeworms.
2014 showed it was still okay. I observed it falling apart in Apr 2015, again in Aug 2016. Why isn't anything being done to correct this situation?
