There are an astonishing number of driftnets wound around trees in the mangroves. A few of us checked out the deep mangroves and even in narrow streams winding through thick growths of trees, we found nets!
mud crabs were found in this fish trap deep in the mangroves. We removed the fish trap and released the crabs, which were unharmed.

Special thanks to Andy, Russel, Jerome, Rene, Nicole, Alicia, Marcus, James and Kok Sheng for removing the nets!
We arrived before sunrise so as to do a quick check on the health of the rest of the shores. More on the wild shores of singapore blog.
