Date: June 2 (Sat)
The Marine SIG is organising a day trip to visit the intertidal seagrass area in Port Dickson. The seagrass ecosystem is one of the most productive ecosystems in the world but it has never been given the special attention that it deserves.
The seagrass communities are nursery and breeding grounds to many marine organisms especially the commercially important and vulnerable species e.g. trevalley, snapper, anchovy, mullet, grouper, prawns, crabs, dugongs, marine turtles, seahorses etc. Learn about the different species of seagrasses that can be found here (one of the highest species count in Malaysia) and how they are important in saving our seafood stock.
Come and join us for a day trip (8am to 4pm) on 2 June 2012. Travelling will be by bus. Cost of the trip is RM40 per pax. Food not included. Places are limited and will be given on a first come, first serve basis. For more details, call Eda at 03-22879422 ext. 27 (office hours only) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
