Cyrene Reef (25 Mar 2011)

The tide is still high when the small team arrives at Cyrene on a hot sunny day!
In fact, the tide has been higher than tidal predictions over the last few days. Is it due to the recent tsunami? The 'supermoon'?

2011 is Pacific Year of the Dugong!

In the Pacific Islands region, the dugong is important in many traditions and cultures. Some of the most important remaining dugong habitats are in the Pacific region.
2011 has been declared the Pacific Year of the Dugong. This regional campaign aims to increase protection of dugongs and their habitats by raising awareness, improving knowledge and fostering to save Dugongs partnerships for conservation of dugongs and their habitats.

What are dugongs? Does Singapore have any dugongs? What can I do for dugongs in Singapore?
