17 Mar (Sat): Horseshoe Crab Population and Distribution Survey

This event is open to the public. The island-wide Horseshoe Crab (HSC) Population and Distribution Survey will start at 11am at various parts of Singapore. This is a follow-up to the last survey held in March 2009. It involves a search for the 2 species of HSCs found in Singapore and conducting a questionnaire survey of recreational and artisanal fishermen at designated potential HSC habitats. An exhaustive transect search will also be conducted at the Mandai mudflats to determine HSC population density. This survey will provide useful information on the population and distribution interval changes of both species of HSCs found in Singapore.

Please register your interest for the survey by clicking on the 'ATTEND' button on the Nature Society (Singapore) website and indicate your preferred survey area in Singapore (northeast, southeast, northwest or southwest) under 'Special Request'.
