In a galaxy nearby, stars are being observed!
A team of volunteers have started an important project to learn more about our Knobbly sea stars.
The recent launch of the study at Cyrene Reef identified 62 unique individuals!
Cuddly and lovable, individual sea stars can be told apart! Some have already been given names such as "White Chip".
These beautiful stars are unfortunately listed among the threatened animals of Singapore, primarily due to habitat loss. Thus learning more about them will help us understand how to protect them.
Read more about the programme on the nature scouter blog and star tracker blog with details of what is a Knobbly sea star and why we should track them, what to do when you see a Knobbly sea star and sightings on Cyrene on 9 May and 10 May!
