Meanwhile, R.U.M. Researchers have been furiously mapping the restoration sites. While volunteers have been helping out with mapping and sharing with the public about R.U.M.

Mapping mangroves at Pulau Ubin!

R.U.M. Researchers Zheng Zhangxin and Ong Wei Bin have been mapping the restoration sites almost daily! R.U.M. volunteer Lisa Lim also joined them for the arduous job of mapping the bare abandoned aquaculture ponds which we hope to fill up with mangroves.

The Researchers also map natural mangroves to find out what kind of conditions mangroves like. In this way, we hope to create these conditions so that Mother Nature can replant the bare ponds. R.U.M. volunteer Ria Tan joined them briefly to help with ID of mangroves.

Monthly free mangrove walk at Pulau Ubin

R.U.M. volunteers Ria Tan and Mohammad Juhari also held another FREE mangrove walk at Pulau Ubin. We had a great time sharing with the small but enthusiastic group of participants, exploring Ubin and the beautiful mangroves.
