It was Mr Toh Ah Cheong, Director (Technology) who suggested that I give a talk at the session. He highlighted how we met during the Labrador coral relocation many years ago!
Prof Chou Loke Ming speak about our shores!
mass spawning! He also shared about mass coral bleaching, and how our corals survived this global event.
middle of the Industrial Triangle.
Singapore's best seagrass meadows!
Knobbly sea stars bigger than my face, in large numbers, right in front of Pasir Panjang Container Terminal. Also lots of other interesting marine life! Some of which are more common in the north, so much so that Cyrene is somewhat the Chek Jawa of the South!
still amazing marine life on this shore, including the awesome reefs that have naturally settled at Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. I also shared about the Plan that International Coastal Cleanup Singapore, Acres and I have put together to manage volunteers should there be (touch wood) another oil spill.
Tropical Marine Science Institute team who manage the Mega Marine Survey were also attending the talk. Yen-Ling gave a brief introduction to the Survey and how ordinary people can play a part.
I look forward to meeting MPA again, hopefully on Cyrene Reef!
