Thousands of farm fishes rot at Sungei Buloh

Thousands of dead farm fishes are floating into Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, raising a stink and many questions.
Another mass fish death at the Singapore's Western fish farms? Why are the farms not disposing of their dead fish properly? This has happened before in July 2013. What is the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) doing to prevent such mass littering incidents from occurring repeatedly? Why don't Singapore farms raise native fishes which are better adapted to our waters?

Pulau Ubin with the Drone!

Hurray, the water near Pulau Ubin is no longer brown 'teh-o' coloured, like it was last week. Let's hope this means there is less of a risk of a plankton bloom and mass fish deaths.
A small team headed to Ubin to recce for the upcoming Imagine Ubin Leafmonkey Workshop, as well as to test The Drone!

Nights at Pasir Ris mangroves are wild!

Pasir Ris mangrove boardwalk is the only one open to the public at night. I had great fun exploring it last night with the awesome people from CPG.
And I visited it again this evening with the Naked Hermit Crabs' free guided walk for families.

How do the professionals deal with oil spills?

Yesterday, I found out from Andy Lee of Oil Spill Response who gave a most informative "Oil Spill Awareness" talk as part of the Sentosa Community Resilience Programme.
Thanks to Grace Lee, Rebecca Tan and Gwee Xin Lin for inviting me to be a part of this.
