Australian Alumni Helps Protect the “Lungs of our Oceans”
Scientists believe that seagrass meadows dubbed the “lungs of our oceans” are declining by an estimated seven per cent every year. So, in 2008, when Australia Awards – Endeavour Scholarship Alumni, Jillian Ooi Lean Sim, returned home with her PHD in seagrass geography from the University of Western Australia, she was determined to study the health of Malaysia’s meadows.
“Seagrasses are really important because they produce all the oxygen that marine creatures require, they clean the water, stabilized our shorelines, and are nurseries and feeding grounds for many important species,” Dr. Sim explains. “SouthEast Asia is a centre for the biodiversity of seagrasses, but we don’t know if they are doing ok or not.”
After many years of advocating for and raising research funds, finally in April 2017, Dr. Sim and her team were ready to begin a longterm monitoring project in some of the country’s largest and most critical seagrass meadows off the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
This area is a popular feeding ground for Dugongs, or sea cows, and today Dr. Sim and her team are on a chartered fishing boat getting ready to dive down to the meadows.
“I am really excited as the day is finally here!” Dr. Sim enthuses as she makes last minute adjustments to her scuba gear and ensures that all their equipment, including metal stakes, hammers, and scientific devices are properly packed in the numerous dive bags.
“We have a very short window of working time,” she explains. “That’s very challenging because we have to fight against currents, while dragging all our equipment down there.”
They plunge in and make their way to the sea floor. The sometimeslush meadows look sparse this time of year and there is little chance of catching a glimpse of a grazing sea cow. But, the conditions are perfect for setting up the monitoring sites. They hammer in the metal stakes and attach the light and temperature loggers before taking photos, collecting seagrass samples and returning to the surface.
Today was the first dive of many to come. Dr. Sim plans to return every three to four months to collect more information, with the aim of buildingup an extensive database over at least ten years. She anticipates that this will provide valuable information for marine park authorities and decisionmakers as they try to balance environmental protection with increasing development and tourism in this stunningly beautiful part of Malaysia. But, she is also hoping that her research will demonstrate the critical importance of these meadows to the health of the entire area’s environment.
“I’d like to see local communities as well as marine park management consider seagrasses as important ecosystems in their own right,” she says.
Expanding people’s understanding of seagrasses drives Dr. Sim. She is particularly passionate about passing on her knowledge to the next generation using the teaching techniques that she experienced while studying in Australia.
“Being in Australia changed my life and it made me the seagrass geographer that I am today,” she says. “Taking what I learned from Australia, I’ve tried to be the kind of mentor who encourages her students to ask questions and be brave about suggesting solutions … I believe that passing on all that knowledge to students is what is going to make a change,” she says.

The Aerotrain connects the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Satellite Terminal with the Airports main building. After taking the train, we arrive at the KLIA Main Terminal Building. Once again we walk pass Duty Free Shops continuously following the yellow Information signs directing us to Immigration / Customs, Baggage Reclaim and the Arrival Hall. Our first stop is Immigration also called Passport Control. We do not film at Immigration / Passport Control as filming and photographing is not allowed. At Immigration / Passport control our Passports are checked, we are photographed and our fingerprints are taken (all electronically). Once we have passed Immigration we make our way to the Baggage Reclaim Area. Check the Baggage Reclaim Information Screens to see which Baggage Belt your Flight Numbers luggage will be delivered on. After receiving our luggage we begin making our way towards the Arrival Hall. Just before the Arrivals Hall we pass through Customs. We do not film the Kuala Lumpur Airport Customs area as filming and photography are not allowed there either. After Customs Control we pass various booths offering SIM Cards, Currency Exchange, Tickets for the KLIA Ekspres, Car Rental and Hotel Reservations before Arriving in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Arrival Hall where the video ends off.
