  • "Sweat Ops" by Robina Teo - With canoes and boats unavailable this year, "wet ops" became "sweat ops" as the group toiled with trolleys and wheelbarrows to move some 4 tonnes of trash back to Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve. Consensus was never to do it again without waterborne transport!
  • 12 hours at Kranji - 30 incidental photos by Charith Pelpola and N. Sivasothi for a glimpse of the organisers. Their day began at 5.30am and ended at 8.30pm. A good 12 hours was spent at Kranji (7am - 7pm),beginning with the morning safety walk through the cleanup site and ending when thelast of the sweat ops crew is stuffed into the rear of the double cab fro delivery to an MRT station and home!
350 volunteers counted, collected and weighed
3.75 tonnes of marine trash
in about 90 minutes. 82% of this was plastic
and 79% originated from
shoreline and recreational activities

Did you ever wonder,
Is there marine life in Singapore?
worth conserving?
