Fast Action at Punggol Beach!

This year, 240 enthuastic students from Sembawang Secondary School
tackled this man-made beach – they were so excited that they almost
forgot to record the data!

Armed with their own household plastic bags, they hunted high and low among the rocks to fill their bags.  At the end of the hour, they removed every plastic bag and bottles. And the main item of the 216kg worth of trash collected at Punggol this morning, styrofoam topped the list!

Thanks to Sembawang Secondary School. They came, collected and left a clean beach behind!

Long intense hours for the Data Manager

The data has been streaming in from returning Site and Zone Captains since this morning, as well as emails from Organisers. The captains have been reporting in physically to the ICCS HQ at the Department of Biological Sciences's Life Sciences Lab 7 at the National University of Singapore – where pizza awaits the hungry souls. From 9.30am to 7pm (and counting) Data Manager Anand Ramchand has been preparing and processing data and this will continue in to the night. We've also been pushing photos up to the web and all agree that web2.0 has made life so much easier thiese days!
