Dear all, it is with great sadness to announce the death of a colleague of ours from Save Our Seahorses in Malaysia. Choo Chee Kuang the founder and Team Leader of SOS was an inspiration to all and our thoughts are with his family and friends.We often shared ideas and thoughts with Choo and he was always insprirational and his enthuisam will be missed. I have posted below the abituary to him posted on the Save Our Seahorses website.

Last Sunday, 9 Jun 2013, Save Our Seahorses Malaysia bade farewell to its Founder and Team Leader, Choo Chee Kuang after a long but incredibly brave struggle with cancer. Chee Kuang will fondly be remembered for his pioneering work on seahorses and the conservation of their precious seagrass home in Sungai Pulai, Johor.

Chee Kuang touched the lives of many who came in contact with him, and inspired many to engage in marine conservation. He will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him intimately.

Thank you for the wonderful years for the seahorses and all those around it. Rest in peace our dear ecowarrior. May your bask in the warmth of Sungai Pulai’s tropical sun forever.
