Sungei Mandai Kechil mangrove is an important but unprotected mangrove forest in Singapore. Part of the Mandai Mangrove and Mudflats (MMM), this is a 15.4 hectare patch of mangrove swamp in the northwest of Singapore.
Midday of Sat 9 June 2018, with permission from SLA/PCG, the ICCS MMM team (Germaine, Adriane, Airani and Otterman) will be conducting a year-round coastal cleanup in the back mangrove there. We are calling out to experienced, hardy and dedicated coastal cleanups volunteers to join us on this mission!
This site is difficult: we have to be very careful to prevent impact, and a lot of trash is trapped in the thorny and dense vegetation of the back mangrove. There may be snakes, hornets and glass pieces. We have to be well protected, very patient and tenacious!
Participants will work as a team to help with the safety, site allocation, site security and coordination of trash transfer.
You must have appropriate footwear to join us as your safety is important.
