September walks at the Sisters Islands Marine Park

We arrived under a full moon, enjoyed a glorious sunrise and saw all kinds of marvellous creatures.
Nearly 100 people made time and effort to join us! Thank you!

We reached the shore just at sunrise!
Some of us were lucky to have more experienced visitors such as Steve (in blue) in our group. He is could find and share stories about all kinds of marine life!
Pei Yan's visitors were treated to this superbly camouflaged Decorator crab!

The most amazing find was by one of the visitors. It's a flatworm that is rarely seen! Rene is now taking a closer look at it to find out what it is as part of the Mega Marine Survey.
 We only have about an hour before the tide turns and we have to leave the shore!
But there's still lots to look at. There are treasures too on the high shore. Such as the pretty puffy white and pink flowers of the Sea poison tree. And its squarish fruits.

On the second day, we were joined by a team from Channel U who interviewed Chay Hoon and joined her tour. Chay Hoon is not only among the most experienced volunteer guide and diver, but also speaks great Mandarin!

Here's the enthusiastic visitors who joined us on the first day (10 Sep, Wed).
Here's the wonderful people who joined us on the second day (10 Sep, Thu).
It was such a joy to share the Sisters Islands Marine Park with these enthusiastic visitors. Thank you!

In September, there was also a lovely feature about the August public walks in the Straits Times Life! thanks to Bryna Singh.
