Seagrass meadows are one of the most productive ecosystems on earth, but no one knows what they are! Are they algae? Are they seaweed? Can they be eaten? Is it true you can find mermaids frolicking in seagrass meadows?
Debby Ng shares more about Siti on the Hantu Blog:
read marine biology as an undergraduate at James Cook University where
she dabbled in various aspects of the marine sciences from geology to
genetics. Her first encounter with seagrasses started in a marine botany
class in second year and when she went back to Singapore during her
semester break, she started surveying seagrasses in Singapore just for
giggles. Little did she realise that brief dalliances turn into lifelong
obsessions – seagrass continued to be a feature when she worked as a
Senior Biodiversity Officer with NParks and now as a graduate student at
the National University of Singapore. She has since accepted her fate
as a seagrass-nerd-extraodinaire and strongly advocates that everyone
should hug a seagrass today.
