Soil Science Conference
A one-day tour will take participants to Kota Kuala Muda to observe the damage done by the recent tsunami to the homes of residents there who are mostly fishermen. We will also be passing the newly built transit homes for the tsunami victims.
Them, the participants will travel to tanjung Dawai, a small fishing town situated near the Sg. Merbok estuary. From the jetty, the participants will be ferried to floating chalets operated by the Persatuan Pertubuhan Peladang Merbok which has ventured into brackish water fish rearing cages. A sumptuous seafood lunch will be served here.
The tour will end with a boat ride along Sg. Merbok to Semeling Jetty o observe the mangrove ecosystem.
The tour costs RM60.00 per person, and limited to participants on a first-come-first-serve basis. The fee includes transport, accommodation, refreshments and lunch.
