Another team of enthusiastic volunteers head out early this morning to check out a mudflat on Pulau Ubin.
Tropical Marine Science Institute (TMSI) gives us a briefing on what to expect on the mudflats. While Jonathan gives the safety briefing.
The team then gamely gets right down to it! The most comfortable way to work is simply to sit on the mud.
And everyone declares that they had fun in the mud! What a great team of volunteers!
FLIP video camera kindly supplied by Shaun Quek of Cisco through the introduction of fellow volunteer Sam Yeo.
More photos thanks to these team members:
- Andy Dinesh's blog more on the muddy team.
- Antonius Mak on facebook much better photos of our findings, plus hornbill at the mangroves.
- Ahmad Syalabi on facebook and wacky photos of fun in the mud with hilarious captions.
There's more work to be done after the field session, to process, sort and identify all these fascinating creatures. Look out for more news on how you can help out in this as well.
The next trips will be announced soon on the mailing list for registered volunteers.
