It has been a very busy month for R.U.M.! In addition to daily mapping surveys, the Researchers did an exhaustive (and exhausting) GPS survey.

We also had our very first mangrove workshop with enthusiastic volunteers to learn about mangrove flora ID. And Rachel Quek has started filming R.U.M. for the Singapore Eco Film Festival, where the RUMblers hope to have a booth as well! Thanks to Phillip Lim and Ah Yong, the R.U.M. posters in three languages are now up at Pulau Ubin Town.
