Successful National Day Mangrove Cleanup at Lim Chu Kang Mangrove!

On 9th August 2014, a group of volunteers celebrated National Day in a meaningful way — by battling marine trash at Lim Chu Kang Mangrove. 83 volunteers showed up and cleared 1.135 tonnes of trash. This is the seventh year we have conducted the cleanup in celebration of National Day.

Our volunteers worked sensitively and cleared trash both from the sandbank as well as from the mangrove. It was a pleasure to work with highly motivated individuals and we completed the clean up ahead of time at 10.30am. Once again, thank you for your lovely camaraderie on National Day, we hope to see you again next year!
