September happenings at the 'Mother Reef'

"The Sisters' Islands, home to Singapore's first marine park, are also Singapore's "mother reef" of sorts, researchers have found. The waters around the two islands are the likely source of the country's impressive coral diversity, thanks to currents which can pull coral larvae in to take root there."

Thanks to Chiang Ai-Lien for featuring the work by researchers in The Straits Times. Volunteers were also busy in September helping out at public intertidal walks and trial dives.
