The mangrove survey ...
Most of the volunteers are off to survey the lush mangroves at Semakau.
The mangroves are vast. Kilometres of trees in lovely soft mud...
It was hard work, trudging through deep mud to get a closer look at the trees and plants growing there.
In many places, the mud was knee-deep or deeper. It requires special mud-walking skills to make it through alive.
Sometimes, mangrove trees have to be climbed in order to get samples to verify the identity of the tree.
Fortunately, we had experts like Subaraj
to help us with identifying the
marvellous plants, animals and
birds of this rich mangrove.
There were even seagrasses growing in the streams flowing through the mangroves.
