NEA blogger and ICCS news

Category : Singapore Naturalist

Pauline Leong is an NEA officer who blogs about work once in awhile, but not very often in recent times. She's been Tomorrow-ed twice and I read the post that Tomorrow featured of her conducting a solo beach cleanup at Punggol.

The group of us who coordinate the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore (ICCS) can certainly appreciate this individual act, and I filed it away mentally.

When Radha Basu of the Straits Times interviewed me about the ICCS this year, I suggested she feature Pauline's positive act as a motivational story. Sure we have a big environmental problem, but it's be nice to read about 'a thoughtful act', particularly by a young Singaporean.

Radha's been away (ICCS results were out in early October) and on Monday, an ICCS volunteer called to tell me that the article on the ICCS was out. Pauline was indeed featured, but there were no links, unfortunately. Digital Life highlighted her blog, apparently for the second time but directed readers to her old blog.

After that article emerged, some media company called on Tuesday about featuring the trash load at East Coast; unfortunately the Zone Captain for East Coast, whom I'd like featured, is away, and I have been unable to hunt down the teacher-organiser who ran half the ECP zone; will try again tomorrow, after I return from Buloh.

On Tuesday too, someone from an industry magazine called the Clean India Journal turned up to learn about the cleanup for an interview. She'd like to follow us out next year and I must remember to call her along - nothing like getting your feet wet, and talk to the passionate young people who run the show.

I just wish they'd be as passionate about scheduling the debrief!
