A few new sites new sites have been identified in the North-West Zone at Sarimbun, Lim Chu Kang and Kranji East mangrove. We will be shifting the groups who work at KR1-4 to these sites as NParks will be conducting works at the Kranji Nature Trail this year and perhaps introduce some new gung-ho teams to join the Singapore American School and NUS groups.
Ria Tan examined the Kranji East mangrove during her inter-tidal sojourns and posted an account on Wild Shores Singapore which doubles as a first recce for us – nature journals are invaluable; thanks Ria!
I will have to visit the site at some point with organisers. Meanwhile the other new sites in Sarimbun and Lim Chu Kang mangrove was examined last year. Photos are up on Flickr. Click the map below to view the sites. We will re-examine Mandai mangroves only later as there are safety and impact issues.
