After 1 week of preparation the penyu team arrived at Derawan. Here Ibu Heldi invested my last payments in improving her place. Now it feels even more like home and our own research station even!
In the week that my supervisors are here we revisited the seagrass meadows that they sampled in 2003. Sampling the same sites from the river to the open see we saw a lot of variation in species composition, algea cover, morphology. At the moment that I write this article Leon Lamers is travelling back to Nijmegen with +/- 10kg of dried seagras, sea water, and syringes with gas. Sjoerd will analyse the samples when he is back in february, we are looking forward to the results of the plant-nutrient analysis.
Check the photos to get an impression! And leave a comment, so that we also get some information back 🙂
We can also receive old fashioned post. Here is the adress:
