Here's Yen-Ling and some of our newest volunteers on the way to Pulau Ubin. It poured as we waited for the van, but the rain stopped by the time we arrived at Chek Jawa!
Mama had a fish hook in her mouth! Fortunately, Andy reported that the fish hook was removed soon after. Today, I learnt HOW the hook was removed!
Sea lettuce seaweed (Ulva sp.) everywhere, washing up in piles even in the middle of the seagrass meadows. Despite this, there's lots of seagrasses too. And the Smooth ribbon seagrass (Cymodocea rotundata) still covers a large area.
Hairy seahares (Bursatella leachii) which seem to be coming into season.
Thanks to Wei Ling and Siti for organising everything for us even though they couldn't come. Also thanks to Ben for sorting out the van transport!
