A large team of volunteers head out for another 'overseas trip'!
As we gathered for departure, the resident cat at the Jetty, whom we affectionately name 'Tail-Cat', is intrigued by our gear!
bristleworm, lots of snapping shrimps and whelk snails and other critters.
Pygmy squid! This little creature doesn't grow much bigger. It has a 'glue-gun' on its butt so that it can stick to seagrass blades where it can rest or lurk for prey. I've seen one catch a shrimp!
spaghetti worm! See the tangle of fine filaments on the head? Cool! However, this site isn't as 'wormy' as other places we have sampled.
Spotted green pufferfish he found.
gobies with pretty blue dots in the shallow streams on the shore.
Yellow-spotted mudskipper! The fishing team also found lots of Eel-tail catfishes and some other interesting fishes. We also got loads of crabs of all kinds, and plenty of little snails.
more laboratory sessions to help sort out what we have found so far. It's exciting to be a part of discovering more about Singapore's marine biodiversity!
