A shore doomed to reclamation
Just outside Underwater World is a natural shore with a living
reef, seagrasses and a sandy shore. In a bay under the cable
car tower large corals were seen, a sea horse, frogfish, rare
sand dollars and other plants and animals on the red list were
encountered. Here are some of the
main sightings made during a few visits.
This stretch of natural shore is affected by reclamation for
the Sentosa Integrated Resort project.At
that time we thought to ourselves: Will we lose the shore even
before we know what is there?
Soon we found out that sadly, the answer was yes.
work began in Jul 07 and one-third
of smaller corals are being relocated.
