TeamSeagrass had lots of work to do at Envirofest 2009! The booth was always crowded with people wanting to learn more about seagrasses.
The activity sheets from International Seagrass Watch were a huge hit! Thanks Len and Rudi!
We also had help from the specimens from the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research. From past experience, the bottled baby dugong is always a big draw. And we then lead on from there to how important seagrasses are not just to dugongs but many other sea creatures too.
Making it's debut today is the marvellous standee done by Wei Ling.
Now it's much easier to show just how much fun we have monitoring seagrasses!
The Minister dropped by the booth on his rounds of the Fest.
I nearly missed taking a photo of him. But I see Wei Ling is literally on top of the situation (she's in the top left corner taking a photo of the goings on).
The Minister, as always, is enthusiastic about the event.
Thanks to Andy, Nor Aishah and Gaytri for taking the lead to put this together. And to all team members who came to help out at the booth! Richard, Jocelyne, Sean, Joanne, Ivan, Siti, Wei Ling, Marcus Tay, Marcus Ng and the RMBR's Toddycats!
