Dredging at Changi Creek Jan-Jun 2015

Changi Creek will be dredged for 6 months next year. This will probably stir up the sea bottom and silt up the surrounding areas including some of our favourite Changi shores.
I took this photo in Mar 2008 of the large equipment used to dredge the narrow mouth of Changi Creek.

AVA takes action on large marine trash washed up at Sungei Buloh

Did this large orange box painted with the number 12 come from a nearby fish farm?

Were the numbers on the box spray painted by AVA? In Jan 2014, there was a media report that AVA explained that it sprayed farm “items that tend to fall in the sea” including “container drums, sofas, television sets and refrigerators”.

I wrote to AVA about the orange box and received prompt replies.

What makes Ubin Day special: The Ubin Day 2014 report

Ubin Day was made possible by MOS Desmond Lee, the extraordinary 30 Organising Groups and the amazing staff at Ubin NParks. And of course, the irreplacable Sumita Thiagarajan, who as intern with wildsingapore, quietly laid the foundations for Ubin Day months earlier.

And we are all excited to do it again! Thanks to feedback and data from the Organising Groups, I did a brief report to help us do a better Ubin Day the next time!
