The trash on the Pulau Serangoon shore

In June 2011, I visited Pulau Serangoon for a recce for otter and ICCS with NParks. I had to put off opening this its as a cleanup site for ICCS as the access way is through a casuarina forest with its typical undulating ground destined to snap an ankle or two.

So I have put off opening that site for now. I have had to focus on Lim Chu Kang East Mangrove and Kranji East Mangrove in the meantime.

Last week, Ivan Kwan from NParks just returned from a visit and reported the trash is load there – its there still, waiting for us to tackle the shore.

You are not forgotten, marine life of Pulau Serangoon! I will keep looking out for an Organiser and a band of volunteers capable enough for this site. there is lot more beyond the highest high water spring tide level and the mangrove, but you get the idea.

Meanwhile, a reminder in the form of Ivan’s photos, the Flickr album of which can be found here.

If you feel keen to do something about this, and have the field experience, do email me at iccs@rafflesmuseum.net. Exam marking is almost over and we can chat during the monsoon and plan to recce the site in the first quarter of next year. No dramatics are required, slow and steady work over several years will have a miraculous effect.

Thanks Ivan!
