Wed 9 Nov 2005: "Life on the Edge: Living Shores of Singapore"

Category : talks

Ria Tan of will share her photos and adventures on the Southern Shores to Changi and beyond on Wed, 9th November 2005 at the Geylang East Community Library at 7.30pm. (Nearest MRT Station: Aljunied; Buses: SBS 80, 155).

This talk provides a leisurely introduction to our shores, and some 600 photos will bring to life the wonderful marine life on all our marvellous shores that are still very much alive today.

The near loss of Chek Jawa from a lack of awareness about the area prompted Ria to visit and document as many of our shores as possible, during the extreme low-water spring tides when the secrets of the shores are exposed.

For the past three years, she and a tireless team of volunteers have conducted still photography and filming during the unearthly hours of the early morning dictated by the tide.

Take this chance to learn about our islands and inter-tidal habitats and be astounded by the diversity and beauty of our very own shores! Most of these

shores are unprotected, so get a glimpse of them!

The talk is FREE and ALL are welcome.

Hosted by Nature Society (Singapore). To join the NSS, email contact@nss.org.sg or call 6741 2036.
