The Chek Jawa 2008 cleanup video!

Ubin Zone Captain Andy Dinesh has completed his video of the ICCS Chek Jawa 2008 cleanup – the video footage is from Chek Jawa and it is peppered with facts from the 2008 ICCS results.

This is our first video out since Wesley’s in 2004; congratulations, Andy!

Long intense hours for the Data Manager

The data has been streaming in from returning Site and Zone Captains since this morning, as well as emails from Organisers. The captains have been reporting in physically to the ICCS HQ at the Department of Biological Sciences's Life Sciences Lab 7 at the National University of Singapore – where pizza awaits the hungry souls. From 9.30am to 7pm (and counting) Data Manager Anand Ramchand has been preparing and processing data and this will continue in to the night. We've also been pushing photos up to the web and all agree that web2.0 has made life so much easier thiese days!

ICCS Data Card updated for 2008

This is important for all organisers – the ICCS Data Card and Excel Submission Sheets have been updated – cleanup organisers can download the new copies at the ICCS Downloads page.

This version reflects the changes introduced to the Data Card by the Ocean Conservancy for the 2008 cleanup – essentially there are now two categories for bags – paper or plastic.

The Excel submission sheet for Organisers to submit their site data has been updated as well.
