Poster exhibition
of our Southern Shores

Volunteers across various groups gathered to put together and run the poster exhibition. The volunteers include guides from Chek Jawa, Blue Water Volunteers and other nature lovers. They contributed their time to share personal experiences with our shores, as well as effort to print the photos and pamphlets and put together merchandise. The exhibition is funded from personal funds.

We would be happy to put up the poster exhibition at any event which would reach out to Singaporeans so that they can learn more this wonderful heritage of theirs.

Here's some of the stories we shared with some visitors...

anemone shrimp on hantu One Singaporean told us that he went all the way to Manado to photograph the anemone shrimp that was featured in our photo. These shrimps are quite common on our shores and easily viewed even by non-divers during low tide.
octopus on sentosa Another remarked that he had only seen an octopus once in his 10 years of diving in the region. We shared that we usually saw at least one if not more octopuses on EVERY trip we made to the Southern Shores. These amazing creatures can reach 1m in diameter, are very common on our shores and often encountered even by non-divers at low tide.
anemone fish on kusu Visitors were also amazed to learn that we have "Nemos" (Clownfish or Anemonefish) too. These are quite common, and happily frolick among the fabulous anemones of our shores. Again, they are easily seen at low tide by non-divers.
seahorses are not uncommon One visitor thought seahorses were extinct in Singapore. She was thrilled to find out that they are still common on many of our shores.

Some of the major exhibitions include
