24 Feb 2015 – A recce was conducted in preparation for the Chinese New Year Coastal Cleanup by Ridge View Residential College (RVRC) students taking GEM1917 – Understanding And Critiquing Sustainability.
As we left Tanah Merry Ferry Terminal and entered State Land, the beach appeared rather clean. Had NEA cleaners been hard at work here after the September cleanup for ICCS?
The trash revealed itself to us slowly, as we walked further away from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
And at the high shoreline, the accumulated trash among the vegetation:

There was still signs of life at the beach! We saw many holes in the ground (homes of crabs), acorn worm poop, moths and herons.
Not all hope is lost!
It’s TIME to STEP up in preserving our marine life!
