In the late 80’s, N. Sivasothi aka Otterman joined D H Murphy’s mangrove mapping team. As he measured trees, and later studied the fauna, he encountered a heartachingly impossible pile of trash. Who on earth would clear that trash? A decade later, prompted and supported by valiant volunteers, a small team embarked on its first cleanup in Mandai Mangroves.
On Wednesday night, he will recall just some of the methods, strategies, considerations and lovely volunteers who chipped away and showed him that this was not an impossible pile.
