Spurred by news about sea turtles coming to nest on Singapore shores, a group of NIE teacher trainees decided something needed to be done to raise public awareness about the need to protect our shores, sea turtles, and their eggs, so that Singapore can continue to be a birth place for these rare and endangered creatures!

Marine Life & Me: an awareness drive, 23-24 Nov, 9am-6pm, East Coast Lagoon Food Village, East Coast Park. Bring your family down!

The group of NIE teacher trainees who call themselves, Giving Gurus, brought together other volunteer groups like the Raffles Museum Toddycats, Wild Singapore, ACRES, and the Hantu Blog, to put together a series of beautiful exhibits that showcase some of the common marine life that we can encounter on our reefs and shores.

Many people paused to take a look at the exhibits and were amazed to learn about local fauna, especially those who visit the beaches often! Some volunteers got to learn new facts about our fauna and history too when the occasional visitor who has lived and explored the East Coast for the past several decades shared their experiences along our shores.

The event is on until TODAY (Sunday, 24 November) so there’s still plenty of time for you to swing by, say hello, play some games, learn something, and enjoy the great outdoors! We saw lots of squirrels and birds yesterday, so hope you get to see them too!
