"I wandered lonely as a cloud,
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of lovely Thalassia leaves;
There amongst the Enhalus plants,
Bopping their leaves in sprightly dance."
Only two species - Halophila ovalis and E. acoroides - have been recorded at Tg. Rimau prior to this, and this surprising Thalassia find brings the species total to three! :) It's really awesome how our shores continue to surprise us. Happy Thursday everyone!

Close to the heart of the city, there are seagrasses! There are good patches of Spoon seagrass (Halophila ovalis) just off the newly built boardwalk at Berlayar Creek!

Siti saw dugong feeding trails at Cyrene Reef! Dugongs are also called sea cows because they only eat seagrasses.
