International Coastal Cleanup preparations begin

Category : Singapore Naturalist

The International Coastal Cleanup Singapore has grown each year. By 2003, we have zones of operations, data submitted early (possibly the earliest in the world), galleries up the same day or in days, organisers receiving info packs including powerpoint CDs, speakers sent to schools who talk about marine conservation as well, etc., etc.

Slowly but surely the management aspects have grown. Well, I have had 7 years in mangroves and 3 years with overall ops. Obviously I'd have to make progress. But this year, the goal is to see Toddycats take greater control. So while I am supervising the planning for overall and Kranji operations in the early stages, I will let the reins go very soon.

Each year we try to make one significant change and this looks to be it for 2004.

So I wrote emails, tweaked mailing lists, talked to several people, set out operations plans, began gathering the trustworthy crew, defined roles and churned out a recruitment ad and had two meetings.

It will be over for me soon, and over to them. If all goes well.

But I did not discuss post-ICCS development. And I just realised I could ask writers like Patricea and Debby to lend the Next Generation a hand in writing to enhance the education value of the data and the stories that unfold. This thought was prompted by Patricea's offer to write during the Heritage Fest training on Sat afternoon.

Now, that's a thought. The weakest link might yet be sewn up.
