Dire Facts about Singapore reefs

About 60% of our local reefs are already been destroyed,and another 15% is expected to be wiped out through current coastal development.

There are close to 200 species of hard corals near the S'pore harbour. There are also rich diversity of marine life such as clown anemonefishes ( also known as 'Nemo'),anemone shrimps, sea horses, giant clams, octopus and more.

There is no need to dive in order to explore the reefs. Our reefs are visible at low tides in the South-west of Singapore such as Labrador, Sentosa, Kusu Island, St John's Island, Sisters Island and Lazarus Island.
