  • Wild Shores of Singapore: East Coast Park is alive

    East Coast Park is alive

    wildshores.blogspot.com 11 Feb '16, 1pm

    East Coast Park shores are becoming richer in marine life! As seagrasses settled on sandy artificial shores. A small team made a spur-of-the-moment decision to check it out yesterday, despite the not-so-low-tide. And we found sea stars, special snails and other surprises. The sandy sh...

  • Snaky at Southern Semakau

    wildshores.blogspot.com 09 Feb '16, 6am

    The southern part of Pulau Semakau lies next to the Semakau Landfill. We checked it out yesterday during a not-so-low tide. We saw lots of sea hares, many Giant carpet anemones as well and checked on the seagrasses and coral bleaching. But the highlight of the trip for me were the man...

  • When lizards hug, what does it mean?

    wildshores.blogspot.com 04 Feb '16, 7pm

    These monitor lizards are NOT mating! Although they appear to be hugging each other lovingly, the truth is far from it! This is actually a pair of male Malayan water monitors (Varanus salvator ) and they are wrestling one another. Each tries to push the other onto the ground. Uh oh, t...

  • Punggol mangroves being smothered by clay?

    There is a narrow sliver of natural mangroves at Punggol near Punggol Jetty and Coney Island. Today, I noticed a layer of bright orange clay coated the area as far as I could see from the roadside. I've reported this to NEA and NParks. I'll update any responses from them in this blog ...

  • Black water at Punggol Jetty

    wildshores.blogspot.com 21 Jan '16, 10am

    The water around Punggol Jetty is black! Checks suggest the water at Pasir Ris and Pulau Ubin still seem alright. While I didn't come across many dead fishes, there were signs of many issues affecting water quality. From trash to coastal works. Please help me monitor the situation and...

  • Checking up on Chek Jawa's northern sand bar

    wildshores.blogspot.com 12 Jan '16, 2am

    My first survey of the northern shore of Chek Jawa in three years. Wow, there has been a lot of changes. The northern sand bar seems to be moving southwards and lush seagrasses forming on its northern edge. My last trip here was with TeamSeagrass in Jan 2013 . I was surprised to see b...

  • Cyrene full of Forskal's and seagrasses coming back!

    wildshores.blogspot.com 28 Dec '15, 5am

    Sandflies: the bane of our shores Sandflies are the beasts I most dread on the shore. I fear them even more than mosquitos. Why? Because I can't see or feel them when th... Terumbu Semakau: no coral bleaching A gorgeous sunset over the city as we explored Terumbu Semakau, a submerged ...
