When the tide is extra low, a large swathe of intertidal habitat becomes exposed, where diving is not required to experience the marine world. Join Lisa as she shares the fascinating marine life found in Singapore’s shores. One can expect to see colourful sea cucumbers, sea stars, sea slugs, sand dollars, sea urchins, and even seahorses and giant clams if you know where to go and how to look for them. Singapore has hard and soft corals as well as sponges, which are home to an array of crabs, fishes, octopus, squids and more. Lisa will also share tips on how to explore the intertidal habitat safely and the challenges in safeguarding them for future generations. The talk will wrap with a Q&A segment.
