19th may 2009, hot afternoon 3pm - Our 3rd planting. We have 2 new planters on board: Jerome (French tourist) & Adec Mel (from Tanjung Sanctuary). As I didn't collect many seedlings this time, I decided to keep the group small. The tide level was about 1.30m when we started and still rising. The mud ground was quite dry this time and easier for us to walk about.
My babies Ceriops Tagal & Brugeira Parviflora are still standing. I stuck 9 seedlings surrounding my babies as defense system. Will it work?... hahaha...
TLC and maintenance time as we discovered that there were a few young trees has collapsed. These were planted about 2 years ago, maybe by the Digi program with the school children.
At the end of the planting, I learnt about the tide level in this area. In future, I need not have to wait for tide to go below 1.0m. Tide level between 1.5m-2.0m would be nice. Better still when the tide is rising which allows us to wash up after.
