Pasir Ris (11 May 2012)

The early hour didn't deter these volunteers from turning up for yet another adventurous mudflat survey, this time at Pasir Ris. Kwan Siong is now the lead officer at NParks and he kicks off the session with a briefing.

Thanks to Rene Ong, we get a glimpse of what happened.

The mud was apparently super soft and sticky, but the volunteers cheerfully plodded (literally) ahead. The best way to avoid sinking is to sit down!
There was also a valiant effort to seine for fishes in the water. Here's everyone taking a look at what was found.
It seems lots of these strange soft sea cucumbers were found here! We don't really know much about it. Which is why the Mega Marine Survey is so important! Every trip out adds more to our knowledge of Singapore's amazing shores!
More photos and stories on Rene's facebook page. Thanks Rene!
