The ICCS has been battling the curse of marine litter for 13 years, and the mangrove arm is in its 8th year. I got involved in 1997 when the original organiser, Kate Thome, roped me in. I ran the mangrove operation in Mandai before shifting it over to Kranji-Buloh. A few years ago, I decided to coordinate the beach operations as well.
This year's theme is "The Next Generation" - Singapore's new cabinet's swearing was also the day museum Toddycats too complete control.
I still guide, of course, and last night, one learnt that "Dear Sir/Madam" letters were a no-no. Get to know the school coordinators and understand their situation. When we send them letters, its warm and personal, because we're now writing to friends, who are contributing to the health of the marine environment.
It'll take a couple of years to learn the fine art of this operation, but they'll get there.
If you want to join them, check the ICCS webpage for details.
