A small intrepid team headed out for Chek Jawa to monitor the seagrasses there just after sunrise.
Throughout our monitoring session, the sparsely distributed Team glimpsed three smooth otters on the shore. I saw them just after sunrise near the mangroves!
dugong feeding trails. Some of these furrows were quite close to the boardwalk. Does this mean we might get a glimpse of dugongs feeding at high tide from the boardwalk? Wow!
Mud crabs (Scylla sp.) and one Mud crab alone, but nearby. Wow, are these large crabs reproducing on the seagrass meadows? I always throught these crabs were usually found in mangroves than on seagrass meadows.
The seagrasses seemed lush today. I saw a slick of green slime in some parts of the shore.
Sea Anemone Workshop. She also gave two public talks: here and here. More about the sea anemones encountered on Chek Jawa on this trip.
We were also joined by Lee Qi and Benjamin who attended to Siti's seagrass experiments. We sure missed Siti today!
Thanks to the small but efficient team, we got lots done well before most people in Singapore had even gotten out of bed this Sunday! Today, we also used the wonderful bags that Wei Ling got for us! They are great!
And thanks to the team to turned up for this predawn monitoring session: Andy, Yen Ling, Nadine, Yunfeng, Gladys, Sean, Jocelyn, Ivan, Jerome. And to James and Chay Hoon for supporting Dr Daphne and Nicholas on this trip.
