The Buloh-Kranji mangroves sites have been run since 1998 and an experienced team from NParks’ Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserves (SBWR), Singapore American School and ICCS Otters manage the site together with the now regular participation of NUS Staff and Students.
The sites KR1 and KR2 will be tackled whereas KR3 is relatively clean.
Cheong Wei Siong who is the Site Captain for Kranji, conducted a briefing with NParks’ Ramakrishnan Kolandavelu at SBWR on Saturday afternoon. They were assisted by ICCS Otter Ong Chee Ang. This briefing/recce session is specially conducted a week in advance and in the afternoon, so that the tide levels are similar to that of the event day.
Kranji regularly turns up a couple of tonnes of trash each year and after a decade, this should show signs of reducing.
