World Wetlands Day on 2 Feb celebrates wetlands such as mangroves. We grabbed this opportunity to share about the awesome mangroves at Pulau Ubin and the work of the Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative there.
Thanks for joining us: Lexus and friends, Heiri who lives on Pulau Ubin, Pushan who knows all about mangroves, and Yen Leng from Water Ventures and of course I wouldn't have made it without Mohammad Juhari, the best RUMbler ever! And of course, Uncle Lim at no. 42 Pulau Ubin for letting us gather at his shop before and after the walk.
