Mega Marine Survey at the TMSI Open House

Today the Mega Marine Survey volunteers helped in raising awareness of our marine life during the Open House at the Tropical Marine Science Institute.
The awesome touch pool is a great attraction and volunteers helped to explain more about the fascinating creatures that can be found on Singapore's shores!

Here's Pei Yan introducing the kids to our marine life.
Yen-Ling and Helen had also set up a wonderful display of some of the work being done by the Survey.
Here, visitors can find out more about what we have done and how we do the Surveys. Dr Ng explains the dredging equipment on display.
The Survey was also featured among the many seminars held during the Open House. Yen-Ling shares more details about the Survey.
With lots of great photos and stories of what we have been up to.
And what we have found during our recent dredges of Singapore waters.
Marcus also shared more about a dredge survey that he volunteered for. And how they found all kinds of things including this strange fishy thing which might be a new record for Singapore.
I very quickly went through some of the amazing submerged reefs in Singapore (we have about 30 of them!) and what I've seen on my own trips there in the past. The Survey will be doing these reefs next year! I also shared more data about the more than 700 volunteers that have registered with the Survey! I'm delighted to know that so many young people have joined the Survey. And of course, also lots of people who are young-at-heart, like me.
Come join the Survey and help make a difference for our marine biodiversity!
