RUMbles in July and August

The RUMblers (as R.U.M. volunteers call themselves) did two clean ups at the R.U.M. site!
They also shared about R.U.M. through kayak tours at Ubin, as well as at Mangrove Speaks at Sungei Buloh.

The Big Event for RUM was Ubin Day! Here's all about the booth, walks, mangrove skit and MORE fun we had that day.

Mangrove clean up at R.U.M. site

In addition, RUMblers were also hard at work cleaning up the mangroves. After the July effort, Lisa said "Together we cleared up 91kg of marine debris from the shore off Kg Durian. 16 volunteers sweat out 1.5 hours and collected 78kg of mostly plastic trash and styrofoam pieces and also 13kg of abandoned (entangled around the mangroves roots)."

Lisa and volunteers were back to clean up again in August! Thank you to all the volunteers led by Lisa Lim for cleaning up the mangroves at a site designated for restoration by R.U.M.!
