Coastal cleanup hours away...

Category : Singapore Naturalist

Preparations since July are coming to a head with the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore now hours away. The Data Manager, Deputy Coordinator and myself are up on iChat, having some fun now that most issues are settled. The Dy Coord is staying over at the museum to tie up loose ends, being the nightbird that she is. So I got her to find and pack the extra camera I decided to bring along.

One of the NUS contingent leaders is there, snoozing away in exhaustion from the past week that involved a last minute shift to Kallang - but it was found to be startlingly clean this morning - probably because of a new contractor is proving their spurs this month and possibly because of preparations to keep the river debris free for the powerboat race!

So NUS is shifting back to Kranji mangroves. Other site buddies and Zone Coordinators will fan out to their sites around the island. After the morning activities re over, they join us at Kranji for the wet ops (hopefully not sweat ops)in the afternoon - the shifting 3 tonnes of categorised marine debris to the bin centre - via canoes and a lot of sweat. The least stressful part of the operation.

I've taken a back seat by this time and its the Toddycats! show. I will help out with the photos, since I failed to train anyone so far, although there are lots of new mac owners around. Anyway, the template is ready and iView Media Pro will be earning its shareware fee!

Everything can and will go wrong, so we're all prepared to have fun!
