Failed monitoring session

28 10 2007

As Ms Siti was at Sentosa looking at other seagrasses, we conducted this monitoring session ourselves, with Mr Lim for assisstance. At least, that was what we were supposed to do, only we overlooked one thing. We forgot to bring our quadrats. :/ We’re really sorry for making that mistakes, after all, all humans make mistakes! Nevertheless, that is not an excuse for such a major crime, and we swear we’ll never do such a thing again.

However, as it seemed such a waste of the low tide and time if we went back then and there, thus we went to explore the area!

The gate to the beach was closed, for upgrading, so we had to climb over the railing. Mr Lim came later as he had some event on earlier. Before his arrival though, we walked along the water edge, and saw many interesting worms! However, we did not manage to catch any decent photos of them. And we couldn’t find them again after Mr Lim arrived, so we never managed to get an ID on them. They were orange though!

We saw many interesting creatures today. And because I don’t have the photos with me now, the photos will be uploaded later.

We saw a small bristleworm, a baby cuttlefish (that changed colour depending on its surroundings!), an elbow crab (Mr Lim said that wasn’t common!), a red egg crab (that was attracted to someone’s butt…), many hairy crabs (they’re cute, like fluffy teddy bears!), a polychaete, flower crabs, a small flatworm that was transparent, blennies and gobies (someone said they were guppies…), mudskippers and a baby butterfly fish! or maybe two.

We WILL upload our photos(: or rather, Mr Lim’s, since ours aren’t of very good quality.


Seagrass Watch newsletter!

After such a long hiatus, due to exams and such, here’s an update! It’s not really an update, just that Mr Lim received the newsletters from Ms Siti today, and we’re featured!

Pardon the bad picture 😛

Yep, and we’ll probably be going down this saturday for another monitoring sesssion! How fun(:
