Chek Jawa in Pulau Ubin was saved by environmentalists.
As a result of active lobbying by the Nature Society, the government scrapped its plan to reclaim 3,000 ha of land at Pulau Ubin and Pulau Tekong for military training use in 2001.
However, the National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan announced that Chek Jawa beach would remain intact for at least 10 years.
Pulau Ubin is the last kampung (village) in Singapore. Let's hope that it will remain intact forever. To achieve this, we need PEOPLE POWER. We need your support to save the nature reserve.
