Cyrene Reef at the Biodiversity of Singapore Symposium III (24 Sep 11)

Jocelyn Sze shares more about Cyrene Reef and the work done by TeamSeagrass on the Reef, with the VIPs attending the Biodiversity of Singapore Symposium III.
How nice to be able to share about Cyrene Reef with the more than 300 people who attended the Symposium!

Guest of Honour Brigadier-General (NS) Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister of State (MOS) for National Development and Manpower not only learnt more about Cyrene from Jocelyne. We also found out that he may be visiting Cyrene Reef! How exciting! Jocelyne took the opportunity to highlight some of the marinelife that he will see on Cyrene, including the awesome Pentaceraster sea star, a new record for Singapore first seen on Cyrene.
During my very brief presentation on marine issues in Singapore at the Symposium, I also managed to squeeze in mention of Cyrene Reef.
Despite being in the middle of the industrial triangle, it has awesome marine ecosystems including among the best seagrass meadows in Singapore!
