How are the seagrasses doing on Sentosa? Particularly after the installation of the massive blue drums as part of a 'security barrier'.
In some parts of the shore, there was quite a bit of seagrasses, even near large pieces of rubbish like tyres.
Tape seagrass (Enhalus acoroides) that have their leaf blades 'cropped' so that they stick out of the water.
Spoon seagrasses (Halophila ovalis) that were severely bleached. Most of the green stuff (chlorophyll) was lost, leaving only a green outline and green mid-rib on a transparent leaf.
my first personal close up look at the the blue drums that rests on the shore at low tide. These are part of a floating 'security barrier' installed in 2012. Pei Yan also blogged about these barriers in April 2012.
massive Pasir Panjang Container Terminal reclamation project, which can be seen on the horizon.
