SeagrassWatch are with us! We also saw more signs of dugongs!
We are greeted by the sight of tame Mama wild boar and her offspring. Two older pigs and many little piglets which still have their 'watermelon' stripes.
Spoon seagrass (Halophila ovalis), Needle seagrass (Halodule sp.), Smooth ribbon seagrass (Cymodocea rotundata) and Fern seagrass (Halophila spinulosa). She also explains more about those tricky seaweeds that often confuse us.

Yifeng saw a Watering Pot shell (Verpa penis) which was once thought to be extinct in Singapore! It sure is still very much alive on Chek Jawa!
Of course, the highlight of the trip was having Len and Rudi observe and improve our work, and share and explain more about seagrasses, dugongs and other important issues. Their warm and constant support encourages and inspires us to keep up our monitoring efforts!
