On 14 Aug, RUM Research Assistants Zheng Zhangxin and Ong Wei Bin led by Prof Dan Friess did the first mangrove mapping at a RUM site! Thanks to support from Joseph Lin from NParks and Mohammad Juhari for documenting our work as usual.
Later in the afternoon, about 30 people joined the leisurely mangrove walk where RUMblers shared about the an exciting ground-up community effort to give Mother Nature a hand in restoring mangroves at abandoned aquaculture ponds on Pulau Ubin. By using the Ecological Mangrove Restoration method, mangroves will be naturally restored at abandoned aquaculture ponds on Pulau Ubin. Here's Prof Dan Friess sharing about mangrove trees and their special strengths and needs.
