The Pulau Hantu Intertidal Walk field trip organised by Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum was simply an amazing experience. By waking up 4 a.m in the morning for the journey, 28 students from Boon Lay Secondary School took a short reprieve from the hustles and bustles of civilisation to experience and be marveled by the inhabitants intertidal ecosystem.
The excursion in the early morning also provided the rare opportunity for me to photograph school event during the first Golden Hour of the day ;)
The menagerie of the marine animals and algae comes in all forms and shapes to impress the participants; present for the field trips includes yellow leather corals, anemones, molting crab, fiddler crabs, snapping shrimps, spanish dancer, seastars, a sea snake and algae of all sizes and shapes.
It was also a dream come true trip for me: I have finally seen a living nudibranch (pronounce as : nuu-di-brank) for the first time in my life!
Other than the massive headache that follows the rest of the day due to sleep deprivation, the Pulau Hantu Intertidal Walk is as good as a field trip gets! Looking forward to it next year.
