Been to Cyrene: Illogically amazing

Sankar says after his Cyrene trip: How would you react if I told you that there is an entire reef, filled with a cornucopia of living things, smack in the middle of the industrial triangle, near a huge and busy shipping lane.
I know... That's what I thought. And yet, it exists!

Dugongs of Cyrene

Singapore has dugongs! There are signs of them on Cyrene Reef, even though it lies in the middle of the industrial triangle.
Siti first spotted dugong feeding trails here in April, and we saw them again when Seagrass-Watch visited Cyrene Reef last month.

Sharing Cyrene with MPA

Last week, I had the pleasure of sharing Cyrene with an intrepid team from the Maritime and Port Authority led by CE MPA Lam Yi Young and organised by the tireless Joanne Fang.
We started well before dawn and were rewarded with a glorious sunrise!

Dugong feeding trails at Cyrene!

Siti saw dugong feeding trails at Cyrene Reef! Dugongs are also called sea cows because they only eat seagrasses.
We often see dugong feeding trails on Chek Jawa, even on Changi. But this is our first sighting of them on Cyrene!

Everyone had a great time and we saw lots of fabulous marine life!
