Mangrove cleanups with RUM

Thanks to Lisa Lim and Kerry Pereira of the Marine Conservation Group, Nature Society (Singapore), there were two clean ups at the mangroves of the abandoned aquaculture ponds at Pulau Ubin.
The mangroves near one of the ponds are very badly affected by abandoned nets that have entangled their roots.
