I must say that this group of students are quite good in identifying things or giving examples, but with much questioning techniques involved. One of them could tell me attap house as one of the uses for the nipah palm.
At the Jejawi tower, looks like directional cards have been stuck onto the edges to orientate visitors. I'm not sure whether this is a temporary or permanent installation.

On the coastal boardwalk, we saw a huge school of fish and many jellyfish swimming around.

The floating pontoon has been completely dismantled for repair works by NParks. New pontoons will be put in place so that visitors joining the intertidal trips can access the shore easily.

The students from DHS took photos with this cute little boy.
And they found a huge weaver ants' nest nearby. Look at how the ants hold the leaves in place.
